Summary

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. 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.

Entry Requirements

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

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.

Progression

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.

Career Progression

GCSE English is very useful in getting started in a wide variety of careers.
