The course covers all the skills needed to gain a GCSE English Language qualification. Lessons will focus on developing the reading and writing skills needed to gain a grade 4 or higher.
What do I need to join?
You do not need any previous qualifications to join GCSE English. Whether you are offered a place will depend on the outcome of your initial assessment, not on previous qualifications. If you do not meet the level of ability needed for the fast-track, 1-year GCSE course, you will be offered a place on an English Functional Skills qualification instead, which will build the skills needed to progress to GCSE.
How will I know how I am doing?
There are two exams at the end of the course in June. The exam dates are externally set and are the same nationwide, so you must ensure you are available on these specific days. They are usually in the first or second week of June.Apply for this course
