Do you love the English Language? Do you have a flair for creative writing and inspiring others? A Level English can offer you a host of employment opportunities, as well as giving you a distinct advantage when applying for universities. Having a qualification in English is not only practical, but it is advantageous in any career before you even start, as a well-written CV and cover letter can often make the difference between you and another candidate.

These courses will give you the opportunity to study the English language and its uses in contemporary communication. They aim to encourage a critical response to texts in a wide range of styles, formats and contexts through extensive enrichment opportunities.Throughout your studies, you will develop a brand new and extensive vocabulary and the ability to read and analyse material as well as developing your own skills as an independent, creative and reflective writer.

The subject is highly regarded by employers and universities but is also very challenging. Students need to be well motivated towards completing written work and reading outside class.
