- September 2023, Part Time
GCSE English Language is a part time course which lasts for one year and is designed for students aged over 19. We offer the course as a 3 hour session per week with options available in the day. As part of this course students will demonstrate an ability with functional English skills, such as writing a letter or report, as well as learning analytical skills, that will help students explore how tone, structure and meaning are created and conveyed in a range of texts.
Applicants should be working at Level 1/2 after an initial assessment has been completed. Those who are not currently working at this level will be encouraged to take a Functional Skills English course first.
You will sit two exams which are externally assessed at the end of the course in May/June.
Students may go on to one of the Access to HE courses at CCN or many university courses which require GCSE English at C/4 grade. Many vocational courses also have this requirement.
GCSE English is very useful in getting started in a wide variety of careers. Being able to communicate effectively and have a good command of written and spoken English are highly-valued skills in employment.
The course is free for anyone who has not yet achieved a Grade C or 4 or above. For students who have already achieved a Grade C/4 or above who are looking to improve their grade please contact the Advice Shop on 01603 773773 for fee information.
