English GCSE

Course overview
Most of our courses are delivered as a two to three hour session once a week and are all taught by an experienced and qualified tutor. For English GCSE you will study a wide range of topics such as how language is used, analysing texts and writing confidently. GCSE exams take place in late May/early June. What happens in the classroom is only a small part of your learning.

We will encourage you to develop independent learning skills with homework and online resources for you to use. Studying outside of the sessions is part of your commitment to your learning along with regular and punctual attendance at your class.

While you are on your course, you will have other learning opportunities to take advantage of and you will be able to access any support your need to further your work or study goals. This includes expert, independent careers advice and any specialist learning support you need to help you progress and achieve.

Who is this course for?
English GCSE courses are for those who are confident with their basic English skills and want to be challenged further. Ideally you will already have a Level 1 or 2 Functional Skills qualification in English but we will work with you to decide if GCSE is the best course for you and explore your options.

GCSE exams take place in late May/early June so you need to be sure you will be free to sit them then.

What can I do after this course?
GCSEs are the ‘gold standard’ recognised by employers and universities and are a vital step in developing your career or for going on to further studies. Many jobs require English qualifications. You will discuss your career and learning goals with your tutor and you will be able to receive specialist advice and support on how to fulfil your ambitions.
