Make your mark

How SFC will help you to boost your CV by developing your skills and qualifications…

Throughout this course we work closely with local universities and each year our students have the opportunity to take part in the national competition ‘The Senior Maths Challenge’. We also encourage students to take part in other mathematics competitions locally and nationally to practice their problem solving skills.

The skills that you will improve through taking this course are highly valued by universities and employers. A mathematics qualification requires students to utilise problem solving skills in combination with logic. Through its application to problems you’ll improve your independence of thought. Your ability to effectively communicate your ideas and solutions will be enhanced and your resilience as a learner will also be improved.
