This course will build on your learning from Level 2 English. Through the study of both written and visual texts, students will develop in their appreciation of literature by growing in their understanding of current issues and wider themes that are important in today’s society. Their language skills will also continue to grow as they use language in a variety of contexts, producing written pieces with particular audiences and purpose in mind. While this is an academically rigorous course that is ideal for preparing students for university, the course also caters for students looking at alternative career pathways. As such, students can ensure this program best suits their needs by selecting to be assessed through internal assessment only, or through a combination of internal and external assessments. Students will do a selection of standards from the range offered, but must enter into a minimum of 18 credits each year.
