English and Maths

We can help you achieve qualifications in maths and English.

Developing English and maths skills is central to all learning at Newcastle College and we aim to ensure that every student has the opportunity to achieve good GCSEs in these areas. English and maths qualifications are now a requirement for most jobs where expectations are that you are able to read, write and use numbers confidently.

If you do not already hold a grade C (grade 4-9 equivalent) or above in GCSE English Language or English Literature and GCSE Maths then you must continue to study these subjects as part of your study programme. This is government legislation and applies to all students irrespective of where they study.

Our dedicated team at the College will be on hand to provide you with as much support as possible during your time with us so that you develop key skills in this areas.
