How will I know how I am doing?
You will be continuously assessed through your assignment tasks. Assignments are set throughout the year, so you will know how well you are doing through regular one-to-one feedback from your tutor and formal feedback on your assessments on TEAMS.
What do I need to join?
One GCSE at grade 3 in Maths or English Language (with grade 2 for the other subject), plus a further two GCSEs at grade 3. You will also need DBS clearance and a good academic reference.
Maths & English
Learners can study a maximum of two GCSEs alongside the Certificate in Common Health Conditions. Learners with a grade 3 (D) in Maths and/or English are required to retake the qualification, and this will be taught alongside their vocational qualification.
