I could do the course around my work with it being in the evening.Kory — Part-time GCSE
Thirty-year-old Kory did a part-time GCSE English Language course at Nottingham College. He chose an evening course as he also had a full-time job.
Kory used the course to brush up on his skills, as professional development for his future.
He was hoping for a grade 4, as he never got his ‘C’ at school. But he did even better than that, achieving a grade 5!
I really wasn’t sure what grade I was going to get, but I got a grade 5 and I feel great now!
“The tutor was very understanding. They know we’re adults coming back, and that we didn’t have to be there, and so they’ve treated us like adults.— Kory
Kory explained that balancing full-time work with part-time study is a real commitment. But he feels that it’s worth it and the College staff are helpful.
They are supportive. For example I voiced that wasn’t very good at exams. They then gave me help and resources, so that I could practise and gain techniques.— Kory
