Students progressing from school are expected to have a grade D in GCSE English, or a Level 2 in Functional Skills English. Applications from mature students with a lower GCSE grade, or no previous attempts are also welcome.

In addition, prior to the start of the course, some applicants may be required to sit an initial assessment (writing in English) to enable tutors to determine their suitability for the course. Some learners may require a year of Functional Skills English before commencing the GCSE.
