Progression from studying English
English Language is so important. You will need at least a Grade 5 in English to access Level 3 courses. Most careers will ask you to have a certain level of English too. Your grade in English and Maths will always be looked at by employers when they are considering you for a job.
From studying English Language GCSE, you can go on to study English Language A-Level. This can lead to studying all sorts of subjects at University or onto exciting English based apprenticeships. For example:
- Print or broadcast journalism;
- Digital Marketing and communications;
- Public Relations;
English Literature, although not a requirement for Further Education, is an important GCSE which displays an educated and lively mind. If you wish to go on to study English Literature at A-level, it also gives you a great foundation in your learning and skill development.
English Literature A-level can lead you to studying a wide variety of subjects at University. English Literature can be studied on it’s own or it can be combined with other subjects such as:
- Creative Writing;
- English Language.
Have a look at the UCAS website to see how many different combinations you can do.
