The Certificate II in General Education for Adults (CGEA) - Bridging Maths, is a partial qualification designed for adults who left school early and are interested in, but do not have a background in mathematics and for school leavers who need to improve their knowledge of mathematics before further study.
Individual learning program
Did you leave school early and find you need to improve your numeracy skills to pursue higher or further education? If so, then this Bridging Maths program is probably for you. It is designed for a range of students whose life experiences have limited their access to education, training and employment.
Go on to further study
The course prepares you for entry into a range of additional courses that have a mathematics component, including our 22229VIC Diploma of Engineering Technology (Civil, Mechanical Building and Mechanical Manufacturing), or perhaps other Certificate II and III courses in a Trade.
