Improving English and Maths skills
English and Maths skills are important within all aspects of our studies, work and everyday life. These skills are so important that we give students the opportunity to work towards gaining Level 2 English and Maths as part of their study programme at the College.
Students who have not achieved GCSE Grade C in English or Maths are expected to retake these qualifications or follow a programme of study which enables them to work towards achieving GCSE Grade C or the equivalent Level 2 Functional Skills qualification. From September 2014 all students will be able to study both English and Maths in the same academic year.
We continue to offer functional Maths and English as stand-alone qualifications for students who are likely to need more than one year to reach GCSE Grade C or equivalent.
