What is it?

They can also underpin the study of pre-release material and preparation for some elements of GCSE English language and literature examinations. The flexibility of this Short Courses means they can be carried out in a variety of settings, over a time period to suit the individual or coordinating centre. Challenge descriptions can be interpreted and adapted according to the situation. This Short Course can be completed using the student book or is available for learners to complete online through our e-portfolio system. Learners log in to complete challenges, record skills development and upload evidence. Tutors can view learner progress and sign off work, leaving feedback as needed.
Who is it for?
Young people of all abilities, mainly aged between 8 and 19 (as well as adults and younger learners, where appropriate). Because Short Courses are multi-level, the focus is on completing challenges and skills development according to individual ability, rather than attainment at a specific level.
