Course Description:

GCSE English at Grade 4 or above is considered to be the ‘gold standard’ for English qualifications for entry into University and by employers. This achievement will give you a competitive edge when applying for jobs, as well as providing you with a more academic approach toward study and your thinking skills. 


Entry requirements:


When you apply for GCSE English, we will ask you to complete an initial assessment to confirm that your chosen course is appropriate for you at this time. Generally, if you have obtained a Grade 3 (D), you will be put straight onto the GCSE course. If the initial assessment shows that you should do a prior qualification before moving onto the level you have applied for, we can offer you enrolment onto an introductory course to take first.


Funding support statement:


GCSE qualifications in English are free to anyone who doesn’t already have either a GCSE grade 4 (C grade), or a Level 2 in the specific subject. This means that the Government will fund your English and maths studies until you achieve either of these grades regardless of your age, or whether or not you are in work.
