Telford College of Arts and Technology in Shropshire is running free GCSE courses in ENGLISH, MATHS, SCIENCE and COMPUTING for home educated 14-16s starting in January 2016. Places are still available.
EDITED JANUARY 24TH 2016 COURSES WILL NOW START IN SEPTEMBER 2016
Courses will run for 18 months with final exams taken at the college in Summer 2017 (no extra charge for exams) The College supports all students with regards to access arrangements. Students can also apply from Wales as long as they are near the border and within what the Education Funding Agency calls normal recruitment/travel area.
