Redcar and Cleveland College has a commitment to provide the opportunity for all learners who do not already hold Level 2 qualifications in English and/or Maths to be supported in working towards those aims or equivalences.
Attendance at Maths & English sessions is a condition for 16-18 learners who have not yet achieved a GCSE Grade C or above in Maths & English and will be an integral part of your main course
Rigorous initial and diagnostic assessment ensures that learners are placed on the right level/course. Clear and measureable targets are in place for English and Maths development and progress is monitored well
Maths & English staff provide learners with high quality advice, guidance and support and work closely with vocational staff to ensure good links between both aspects of a learner’s programme
The college ensures all learners have the opportunity to study and improve their Maths & English and achieve appropriate qualifications leading to A* – C GCSE Grades in those subjects
As part of your main course (and dependent on prior achievements), your timetable will include slots for both Maths & English. As a college requirement attendance is expected to be over 90% in all subjects
Additional support is designed to meet individual needs. It can be discussed during initial interview; on programme and throughout the year
