English, Maths & Functional Skills

At the College of North West London we recognise that English and Maths are paramount to the success of individuals in their training, employment and personal life. We’re fully committed to developing these skills and strive to ensure that our students have achieved a grade 4 (C) or above in English and Maths by the end of their study. We will also ensure that the English and maths skills of our adult learners are improved for them to realise their full potential.

If a student has not previously studied the GCSE curriculum or has previously achieved a grade 1 or 2 in that subject, they are enrolled onto a Functional Skills course, where they will be supported to work towards achieving a Level 1 Functional Skills Certificate.

Where a student has previously achieved either GCSE grade 3 or they have achieved Functional Skills Level 1, they are enrolled to a one-year GCSE programme.
