The syllabus for English Level 2 is equivalent to GCSE/IGCSE Maths, however, please bear in mind that the GCSE English is a qualification registered by Ofqual whereas this English Course is a Level 2 Certificate.
If you are looking to progress onto further employment, university, or college, it is best to check the entry requirements. If they require a GCSE in English or equivalent, you would be best taking one of the following courses:
If they are just asking for a Level 2, this course should be fine, however we would always recommend that you check with them first.
You will receive support and access for 12 months; however, we have had learners complete the course as quickly as 1-2 months.
It all depends on your deadline if there is one and the amount of time you have available to allocate to the course.
If you are looking to complete the course as soon as possible, once enrolled, you will have the opportunity to add this to your enrolment form. This information will be passed over to your tutor so that they can help you as best they can.
On average, you would need to achieve approximately 75% or above on your assignments. This is not set in stone as your tutor will need to ensure that you have met all the required outcomes to pass the course.
If you submit an assignment where you have not passed, you will have the opportunity to revisit this and correct any errors. Your tutor will provide feedback at each stage to help you progress through the course and they are also there for you if there is any aspect you do not understand.
It all depends on your preferred learning style and resources will be provided to help you with this.
However, rather than sitting an exam, your course will be based on assignments and sometimes this makes a course more achievable to the learner.
We do also offer the English Functional Skills Level 2 course. This is not as in-depth as the GCSE but you would need to sit exams still.
