Aylesbury College offers Students the Chance to master Core GCSEs alongside Vocational Courses

  |  Published: Sep 6th 2013

A new Government initiative introduced this month, means students between the ages of 16-18 who do not achieve a GCSE Grade C or better in English and Maths, must continue to study these important subjects and work towards a GCSE pass.  Aylesbury College welcomes this initiative.  Students enrolling for this term can study for English and Maths qualifications alongside other vocational courses, as an alternative to staying in school.

Karen Mitchell, Principal, comments:  “Employers tell us how essential it is for business that our young people have good levels of English and Maths, particularly with current employment levels and the challenges the UK faces in a global market.  By running these core subject courses alongside our vocational subjects, our students will be given the best opportunity to achieve all the qualifications they need for the working world.”

Education Secretary Michael Gove said:  “Good qualifications in English and Maths are what employers demand before all others. They are, quite simply, the most important vocational skills a young person can have. Young people must be able to demonstrate their understanding of these subjects.”

Aylesbury College continues to recruit for this term with places still available on many courses.  If you would like more information on the courses Aylesbury College offers, please call 01296 588595 or email admissions@aylesbury.ac.uk.
