About the course
Each individual will be fully assessed by our professional tutors and advised on a 1 year GCSE or 2 year GCSE course. The 2 year route includes 1 year of Functional skills prior to doing GCSE.
If English is not your first language, we will ask you to do an initial ESOL assessment. We offer a range of ESOL classes which may suit your needs better than a GCSE.
No specific entry requirements you will be advised on the best route to GCSE after an assessment. This specific course is for home educated students only.
AQA GCSE English - new specification (grades 1-9)

What you'll learn (core modules)
The tutor will prepare learners for exam entry for GCSE which is completed in June 2018. The course consists of the preparation for two written examination papers - one in Reading and one in Directed Writing. There is also a Speaking and Listening component which is assessed by a short oral presentation and interview.
This is an intensive GCSE course so it is expected that learners will attend each lesson and spend an equivalent amount of time studying/doing homework between lessons.
