At Preston College you can study maths or English as a Functional Skills course or as a GCSE.
Functional Skills classes start throughout the academic year and are a great way to prepare you for the further study. GCSEs start in September each year, with the option of evening or daytime classes. We also offer a ‘Fast-track’ study option in January.
If you don’t already have a GCSE grade 4 (formerly grade C) or above in the subject you wish to study, the course will be FREE!*
Before you begin a Maths or English course, you must attend Preston College for an assessment. The assessment is used to determine which level of study is right for you, to make sure that we are putting you into a class with others of a similar level and ability.
