English is a part of everyday life and being able to read, write and communicate effectively is essential to being successful in the workplace. We offer learning in small groups where you are all working at the same level and have the support you need to succeed, whether that be through extra one-to-one tuition, coloured resources or prompt sheets.
There are two English routes:
GCSE English Language
If you achieved either a grade 3 in your GCSE you will be studying to sit GCSE exams in either November or June. You will complete GCSE assessments and skills checks to identify your weak areas, allowing your tutor to provide you with personalised resources to give you the best chance of success.
Functional Skills English
This qualification has five levels and we can match you to a group and level that is achievable for you. There are three Entry levels, followed by Level 1 (equal to grade 3 at GCSE) and Level 2 (equal to grade 4 at GCSE). Functional Skills qualifications are recognised by all training providers and employers, so you can be confident about progressing into further education or employment.
