Please choose from the courses below.

Academic year: 18/19

Duration: Multiple start dates available.


Here at Macclesfield College we offer both Functional Skills and GCSE English. We have various course start dates depending on which course / level is to be completed.

GCSE is now the new 9-1 format.

Functional Skills offers you a broad range of subject knowledge in a functional, real life context. Learners often feel this helps contextualise the questions and allows for better understanding of the subject. This qualification can be used as a stepping stone towards GCSE.

Courses are suitable if you wish to improve skills to support your children with homework.

Classes take place either in the evening or during the day for approximately 2 – 2.5 hours per week. There is an expectation that you will complete some self-study at home in conjunction with your course. This will vary depending on your level and ability, but as a guideline, you should allow 2-3 hours a week to complete homework and self-study activities.

Only one level/subject may be studied per year.
