GCSE English Language — Part-time
GCSE English Language not only gives you the reading and writing skills you’ll need for life, it is your golden ticket to apply for other courses, apprenticeships and jobs – having a grade 4/C or above at GCSE English is now a standard requirement.
This course will cover:
Explorations in creative reading and writing:
- In section A, reading a literature fiction text in order to consider how established writers use narrative and descriptive techniques to capture the interest of readers
- In section B, writing your own creative text, inspired by the topic that you have responded to in section A to demonstrate your narrative and descriptive skills in response to a written prompt, scenario or visual image.
Writers’ viewpoints and perspectives:
- In section A, reading two linked sources from different time periods and genres in order to consider how each presents a perspective or viewpoint to influence the reader
- In section B, producing a written text to a specified audience, purpose and form in which you give your own perspective on the theme that has been introduced to you in section A.
