GCSE English

GCSE English

You may need GCSE English to improve your chances of gaining employment, or you have previously taken the qualification and are looking to improve your grade. Once assessed it will be decided if you are suitable for this course or if you need to do an alternative course first. The teacher will discuss this with you at the interview stage.
You will study reading and writing skills in preparation for the GCSE exam. You will also be required to take part in discussions and give presentations to improve your listening and speaking skills.
You already need to be working at Level 2 in English. You'll need to take an online assessment and have an informal interview with a teacher before you can join this course. You need to be passionate about English and enjoy reading for pleasure.
You will meet as a whole group once or twice a week and do work in class, but you are also expected to use the College's Learning Resource Centre and do self-study to prepare yourself for the exams and course assessments.
You will take an external exam in May or June. There are no controlled assessments
