Continuing with English and maths post-16

You will be expected to continue studying English and maths post-16 if you didn’t achieve GCSEs in these subjects at A*-C at school.

This applies to all post-16 options including all further education, apprenticeships and traineeships.

You may study towards functional skills or other qualifications in these subjects instead of GCSEs, depending on your ability.

These changes have been made to improve your chances of getting a job.
