Once again its congratulations and very well done to all our GCSE adult students. 100 per cent of them have achieved grade 4 or higher (equivalent to grade C or above).
This marvelous achievement is a testimony to their hard work and to the commitment, and effort of the tutors and support staff at Northern College.
Northern College runs English and Maths courses for adults, to support them to re-enter education to gain employment, retrain or access university. These run at flexible times to suit learners’ needs, including during the day and at weekends.
Satisfaction rates for all courses are high, with excellent feedback.
GCSE English and Mathematics at Grade 4 or above are considered to be the ‘gold standard’ for English and Mathematics qualifications for entry into University and by employers. This achievement gives adults a competitive edge when applying for jobs, as well as supporting them in their studies.
Many adults can also study for free. This is because GCSE and Functional Skills qualifications in English and Maths are free to anyone who doesn’t already have either a GCSE grade 4 (C grade), or a Level 2 in the specific subject. This means that the Government will fund English and maths studies for adults until they achieve either of these grades regardless of your age, or whether or not you are in work.
