Our Full Time GCSE programme is one of a kind in Greater Manchester and provides a pathway for new arrivals in the UK and home-schooled students to acquire GCSEs in order to progress further with their education. It also offers a chance for students to retake their qualifications to get into a particular course.
The Full Time GCSE Programme gives learners the opportunity to study 4 GCSEs in one academic year. As with all Level 2 courses, any learners who have not attained passes (grade 4 or above) in their GCSE Maths or English Language will need to study these as part of their 4 subjects. Subject to demand and availability, we are sometimes able to offer a fifth GCSE in a modern foreign language such as Arabic, Chinese, and/or Spanish to native speakers.
Students who continue their journey with us for A Levels will also be able to pick up additional GCSEs the following year to further enhance their profile.
Like all Level 2 courses, we will be traditionally looking for 4 x grade 3 or above including 3’s in Maths and English Language (achieved in the most recent summer examination series). This will mean that learners have a good chance of improving to passing grades in one year.
Students who have not attained any GCSEs in their last academic year (I.e., if they have arrived from abroad or were home schooled) will need to take a short assessment to ensure they are working at a grade 3 (or above) level in Maths and English Language.
What you will Learn
GCSE exams are held at the end of the year during May and June. All subjects are exam-based.
Many learners use this course as a platform to move onto Level 3 qualifications including A-Levels, Access, T-Levels, BTECs as well as Apprenticeships. This course will prepare you for Level 3 qualifications which can lead you straight into work or Higher Education. Former Full Time GCSE alumni have continued their journey at Trafford College before progressing to degree courses such as Medicine, Law, Literature, and Engineering at prestigious universities including Manchester and Oxford.
