Covid Update

On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April.

Updated guidance advises:

  • Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and no longer have a high temperature.
  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to college when they no longer have a high temperature, and are well enough to attend.
  • Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice is 3 days.

For education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April:

  • Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any education or childcare setting, including in SEND, alternative provision and children’s social care settings. Therefore, we will no longer be able to order test kits .

GCSE English for Adults Level 2 | GCSE (9-1) English Language 2.0

Information Dates and Enrolment


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.

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 that you are available on these specific days. They are usually in the first or second week of June.

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, one-year GCSE course, you will be offered a place on the progression course instead, which starts with building skills on an English Functional Skills qualification.

Additional Information

Lessons are three hours, once a week, in the daytime or evening, and could be at either the Filton main site or the WISE Campus.
