Course Information:

Introduction to this course

This course will develop the skills you need to read, understand and analyse a wide range of different texts covering the 19th, 20th and 21st century time periods as well as to write clearly, coherently and accurately using a range of vocabulary and sentence structures.

There are two written exams in May/June.

Paper 1, Explorations in Creative Reading and Writing, looks at how writers use narrative and descriptive techniques to engage the interest of readers.

Paper 2, Writers' Viewpoints and Perspectives, looks at how different writers present a similar topic over time.

In addition, you will be able to demonstrate your speaking and listening skills during the spoken Language Assessments.

If you do not already have GCSE English and Maths at grade C, this course may be free.


Entry Requirements

You need to complete the initial assessments and have a real enthusiasm and a real desire to achieve grade 4 or above!

It is desirable for students to already have a grade D in GCSE English or a Level 2 in Functional Skills, but this is not essential.


Career prospects

GCSE English Language is a gateway qualification for entering employment and joining Further and Higher Education courses. It is essential for anyone considering a career in Education.
