New and returning learners:

Please note that due to special measures we have put in place to make our sites COVID safe, we are asking all learners to enrol with us online. If you are unable to do so we can support you over the phone, simply call 0800 612 6008. Please do not enter our college sites without a prior appointment as we are managing the number of people on site at any time to comply with social distancing measures.

See information about the measures we are taking to keep learners safe while on campus.

If you don’t have enough GCSEs at grade 4 (C) or above to study on a Level 3 course, this pathway is for you.

This full time course is designed to support student retaking GCSEs, and comprises of the following GCSEs:

  • Maths
  • English
  • History
  • Geography
  • Sociology

What I'll learn

During the course we will prepare you with the relevant study skills and attributes to ensure you are ready to progress to A Levels, or other Level 3 qualifications, for example BTEC Extended Diplomas, with the aim of progressing to university or employment/an apprenticeship.

 

How I'll learn

You will study using a range of techniques including:

  • group work
  • independent study
  • research
  • practical activities
  • homework 

We expect our students to be fully committed to their studies and attend all timetabled lessons, talks, tutorials and workshops. You will also have a weekly tutorial.

In addition, students can expect to attend trips and visits according to the needs of the individual subjects.

 

How I'll be assessed

This GCSE is assessed by coursework and a final exam.

 

We'd like to thank all the employers who provide invaluable work placements for students on these courses
