Is the Course for me?

If you did not get the results you hoped for at English GCSE and want to progress your studies, we offer a very successful English GCSE re-sit programme, which you can study in the evening. This programme provides a sound base to progress onto further academic study, or to help gain employment. This programme is open to any students within the college who require GCSE English in order to progress with further studies. You must be registered on a Newham College course at Level 2 or Level 3 in order to enrol for this particular programme.

What is involved?

You will study ways to communicate your ideas clearly - whatever you are writing. This course will develop your reading and writing skills through a variety of tasks and you will learn exactly what you need in order to succeed. There will be two controlled assessments and one external exam in May/June, covering the following topics:

  • English Today
  • The Writer's Voice and Spoken Language
Independent study sessions are run alongside more formal work and in your free time, you can use our extensive library, computer, multi-media facilities and join in a wide range of social activities. You may also be eligible for support with your studies if you have a learning difficulty or disability. This support is free to UK residents.

Progression

This is a recognised qualification that will enable you to continue your education by moving on to more advanced programmes, alternatively you could begin to seek employment.
