English, maths & ESOL

English & maths

Not everyone enjoyed school and what was a struggle then, may not be so much of a struggle now. For many career routes it’s often necessary to have at least English and maths GCSE’s at C (4) or above. 

Retaking your GCSEs as an adult can be a challenge, you may have been out of learning for a long time and lost a lot of the skills and knowledge gained when you were at school. If you’re aged 19 and over and don’t already hold an English or maths GCSE grade 4 (C), you can study for your GCSE or Functional Skills qualification with us here at Stockport College.

GCSE English & maths

If you have a Grade 3/D at GCSE or Functional Skills Level 2 you can apply for GCSE Maths or English at Trafford College.

Functional Skills

If you do not have a Grade 3/D at GCSE or a Level 2 in Functional Skills then you need to apply for Functional Skills Maths or English to progress to GCSE.
