Our English courses aim to help people who would like a Functional Skills qualification in English.
Whether your goal is learning to read, improving your writing skills, or preparing for the GCSE exam, our experienced tutors will work with you to identify the things you need to focus on and support in achieving your goals.
We place everyone in a class with similar abilities, so if you are just starting learning to read, do not feel worried, your classmates will be in a similar position and all abilities are welcome.
All English courses are free(subject to eligibility), part time and run over no more than 17 weeks (apart from GCSE which runs for 32 weeks).
Courses start in September or February but you can enrol throughout the year (apart from GCSE - Sept start only). The start and end times are school friendly enabling you to drop off or pick up children and evening classes are available. We use various methods of delivery: Online, in a classroom or blended (which is a mixture of both).
There are no set entry requirements. Before starting your course you will need to attend a skills scan to ensure you are joining the most suitable course for your needs. Prior qualifications will be taken into consideration where relevant. To book a skills scan session, click on the green Enrolment Information button online, or call 01375 372476.
