How do I enrol?

Prospective GCSE learners should have a minimum of GCSE grade D/3 or Functional Skills level 1 and must pass a pre-course assessment before starting the course.  If you have been away from education for a while or have no qualifications but are confident in your every day skills, come and talk to us.  Passing the pre-course assessment is the criteria for being offered a place on a course.  We will take learners for ONE GCSE only.  However, if you are uncertain which GCSE to apply for, you are welcome to sit assessments for English and Maths (See GCSE Maths page) to enable you to make an informed decision.

Pre-course assessment dates and times: end times are the latest you can arrive to begin the assessment.
