What are they for?

Many of the courses we offer at Rossett Training require you to have a certain level of proficiency in maths, computer skills and English communication. 

Before beginning any course with us you will be required to take a WEST assessment. This will allow us to establish your current working level in these 3 areas and to determine whether you will need to complete any of the Essential Skills Qualifications to meet the required standards for your course.

How we will work with you.

Using your WEST scores we will create a personal learning plan for you and establish the necessary training required for you to reach your desired level. 

For any further information about our Essential Skills package, or to apply, please contact us.
