What do the qualifications mean?

GCSE Level

This stands for General Certificate of Secondary Education. GCSEs are highly valued by colleges and employers and very useful whatever you're planning to do afterwards. You'll study the theory of a subject plus you will do some investigative work. GCSEs are at levels 1 and 2 on the National Qualifications Framework, depending on the grade you get. We offer part-time day and evening courses.
