College ready to help pupils make grade
NEW rules are being introduced to say youngsters will have to continue studying for a C grade in maths and English if they do not succeed at GCSE the first time.
And Gloucestershire College is stepping forward to help.
Teenagers who do not meet the grade at 16 will be required to continue learning the subjects until they gain the qualifications under new Government reforms.
Many students in Gloucestershire already choose to retake core GCSE subjects with Gloucestershire College in Cheltenham, Gloucester and the Forest of Dean.

The college offers GCSEs in five key subjects to enable students to re-take their maths and English qualifications while putting together five GCSEs in order to step up to A levels or a vocational qualification.
Principal and chief executive Matthew Burgess said: "We know that good qualifications in maths and English are a basic skills requirement for all employers.A good grasp of numbers and the written word are the skills which employers tell us need to be improved ."
