Emily (above) achieved Grade 7 in English Language, she is now using her qualification to complete a teacher training qualification in Maldon. She said “I left school with 2 GCSEs in Maths and Design & Technology. Achieving my English GCSE means I can now move on to teacher training. It’s been brilliant – even online – to have the opportunity to learn from home.”
Zoe (above) successfully completed her GCSE English and passed Level 2 maths. She said, “I’ve been coming here a long time – since 2015. There have been many benefits to studying at ACL – it is an easy to get to, flexible learning (which is important when you have to think about childcare), and supportive staff who have helped me and my learning.”
Jo, ACL GCSE English learner also passed. She said, “The GCSE have been fantastic fun! This was something that I’d wanted to do for years. It’s been so amazing and helped me regain my passion for reading and further interest in creative writing which I definitely want to pursue.”
ACL offers a wide variety of online learning courses, including GCSE qualifications. First class teaching and exceptional tutor support enables learners to improve their career prospects and personal skills. Additionally, it gives learners the opportunity to move on to further study, such as Access to Higher Education courses, further education, and university.
Susan Adamson, Curriculum and Learning Manager, said “Congratulations to all of our GCSE learners, they have achieved these outstanding grades through their own hard work and determination. From the start of their course the learners prepared themselves for any changes to the exam process and as a result, when the information that Teacher Assessed Grades would be used to determine the outcomes, our learners were able to prove they had gained the skills and knowledge to be successful.”
