This course is for anyone who may be thinking about doing a GCSE qualification with us, either as a year long course starting in September or our Fast Track course which begins in January
You will learn about the requirements to successfully complete the Maths GCSE course. You will be given an introduction to topics such as number, algebra, shape and space, geometry and data handling and get an idea of the work required to gain a grade 4 or 5.
Our classes are small and welcoming, you will work with others and on your own through a combination of whole class teaching and individual work in breakout rooms using zoom. You will be taught by supportive and friendly tutors who provide lots of practical help and guidance. Courses are available online during the daytime or in evenings, so you can fit study around your own requirements.
There are no entry requirements for this course, although if you wish to enrol on our main GCSE maths course, you will be asked to complete two short assessments to ensure that the GCSE is the right course for you. Our GCSE courses are free for anyone who has not already achieved a grade C (grade 4)
Your tutor will give you spoken and written feedback to help you make progress by completing your ILP (Individual Learning Plan) and by discussion with you in your classes.
