About the course

This one-year programme delivered from the Bournville campus in Longbridge provides a set of GCSEs to enable adult (19+) students who do not have enough GCSEs (or equivalent qualifications) to progress onto Level 3 Access to Higher Education Diplomas (or other Level 3 courses) and on to university. Improving your GCSEs, particularly Maths and English, will also have a positive impact on your employment prospects or promotion opportunities within your organisation. The GCSE team specialises in teaching adults, we know what it's like to return to learning and we're here to help you to achieve your goals. You will be provided with a personal development session each week to review progress and set targets to ensure success.

You will be able to study both English and maths GCSE - depending on your previous achievements and initial assessment results. There is also an option to also study Combined Science if required for your progression needs.

What do I need?

To be considered for GCSE you will need a minimum of a Grade 3 or D in GCSE English and maths or Functional Skills Level 2 in maths and English. You may also be required to sit an initial assessment to ensure you are enrolled onto the most suitable level.

Where can I progress next?

Achieving Grade 4 and above in GCSE English and maths will open many doors to further education courses at the college, including Access to Higher Education courses. If you're intending to progress onto an Access to Higher Education Diploma and then university, please check the GCSE requirements of the degree course you intend to take. A good pass grade in GCSEs are also seen by many employers to be a vital indicator of your English and maths ability for employment.
