Our courses

Maths and English

Maths and English are an integral part of all of our programmes. We provide OCR GCSEs (9-1) in English Language and Mathematics. Depending on your previous attainment, we will place you on a programme that suits you. This could be Functional Skills or if you've previously achieved a 3 or D, GCSE. 

Plus, we were shortlisted for the Outstanding GCSE Resits Provision at the 2020 Tes FE Awards! 


As well as the study programme, you can also complete a traineeship for up to six months which includes:

  • a work placement offering developmental work experience
  • work training skills, for example CV writing, interview preparation and interpersonal skills
  • qualification in maths and English
  • a range of support and flexible training to help develop skills and progress quickly on to an apprenticeship or secure employment.
