English, GCSE Level 2
- September 2020, 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 or evening. The course uses the curriculum created by AQA. As part of this course students will demonstrate an ability with functional English and become familiar with classic and modern texts, creative writing and poetry.
Applicants should be working at Level 1/2 after an initial assessment has been completed at interview. Those who are not currently working at this level will be encouraged to take a Functional Skills English course first.
Assessment on this course consists of two externally marked end of year exams in May/June. These exams will be based on the new grading system from 9 to 1.
Students may go on to a variety of other programmes within the college and elsewhere.
GCSE English is very useful in getting started in a wide variety of careers.
The course is free for anyone who has not yet achieved a Grade C (Grade 4) or above. For students who have already achieved a Grade C or above who are looking to improve their grade please contact the Advice Shop on 01603 773773 for fee information.
