English GCSE - part-time courses

Get the grade you always wanted on our part-time English GCSE courses.

If you do not already hold an English GCSE grade 4 (C), you can study for your GCSE qualification completely free of charge with Activate Learning.

For whatever reason, many people struggle to achieve a grade 4 (C) in English at GCSE level the first time around. From our experiences as educators of people from all walks of life, we understand the many different ways that not holding the qualifications you know you are capable of can affect you.

Luckily, helping you through your learning journey is our area of expertise, so we have specially designed our GCSE courses to fit around your life and work. We run our courses on a part-time basis, with classes on weekday daytimes and evenings. Typically, there are around three hours of lessons a week, plus blended learning through our virtual learning environment and online resources.

How you learn

In the lessons, you'll begin with the basics, then move gradually to more complex material when you are ready.

Alternatively, you could try our new online English GCSE course. This gives you the same level of support and expert teaching that you would receive from an OFSTED-rated ‘Good’ provider but with an added level of flexibility around your study methods and how fast you learn.

After graduating from any of our GCSE courses with the grade that you knew you were always capable of, you will also have learned vital skills for further study or employment, including self-confidence, speaking in front of others, working with others, taking responsibility, and managing your time effectively.

A good English GCSE grade can be a stepping stone to further education, a fulfilling career, and a better future.
