I managed to pass my GCSE, probably one of the oldest learners at age 64. Now I’m looking to get back into learning and hopefully take an A level in maths.”


Studying English Functional Skills, I now have an improved confidence and I can walk around with my head held high.


Helped me find the real me. I now have the confidence and the qualification to find myself a job. Thank you to my tutors who believed in me and pushed me to my limits it sure has paid off.


I have now passed both my functional skills courses and am currently studying for GCSE’s. I must admit it’s much better and I am way more confident.”


I started learning Functional Skills with On Course. I’ve since found work with a charity and am so proud of my qualifications.


Passing my GCSE made me feel super chuffed and means I can now go on to study an access course.


The course is very lovely, I’m now enjoying more learning to work with children. I’ve learned that we can make a difference.


Everybody’s really welcoming, and nobody judges you, and you can be who you want to be. It’s just a great way to get going.


I’ve just received my results and have passed both my GCSE English & Maths. I left school in 1988. Getting the chance to redo them was a great opportunity for me. Such a good feeling to have passed, onwards and upwards for me.
