Kory — GCSE Eng­lish (part-time)

Kory1

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.
