English Language A-Level
- Call Student Services on 01539 814700 for information.
A-Level English Language explores the study of English Language both as a medium of communication and as a topic in its own right, with an emphasis on the opportunity for students to pursue lines of enquiry, analyse texts produced by others and debate different views.
The course covers a variety of topics including how the language has changed and developed over time and how language can be used and manipulated for various effects, both on an individual level and also on a societal level.
The course gives students the opportunity to develop independent approaches, and to undertake paired and group work. This develops critical understanding in analysing the ways in which language changes and develops on both an individual and global scale.
The course can be taken in the following ways:
- Within KC Sixth with another two, possibly three A-Levels, tutorial and optional EPQ and Core maths
- As an ‘add on’ to a Full Time Level 3 Study Programme at the College, for example alongside a BTEC Extended Diploma
- As a stand-alone part-time course
English Language will give you a wide range of job prospects including advertising, human resources, journalism, law, publishing, management, teaching amongst others.
The entry requirements for this course are:
5 GCSEs at Grade 5 or above (A*-C) which must include Maths.
GCSE English Language at Grade 6 (or B).
