What should I have already achieved?

What will I learn?
The focus of Year 11 English is to develop an interest in reading. The course will give students the                   required skill to understand, analyse and evaluate a range of text types. We aim to assess the reading             at Level 2 through the 2.9 standard.  The ability to use the conventions which govern the use the English Language in the written mode is also a strong focus.  Students will be supported in their learning through the use of an on-line tool, Education Perfect.

How will this course be assessed?
The course will have internal and external assessments, as above.

Will there be Further Assessment Opportunities (FAO)?
No assessments include a FAO.

Are there any pre-requisites for Level 2 English?
A minimum of 12 credits, including achievement in one writing standard (AS90052 and AS90053) and               achievement in one external (AS90849, AS90850 or AS90851) is required for unconditional admission to         Level 2 English. It is preferred that you have demonstrated a broad base of English skills and achieved:           one internal assessment for reading, one internal assessment for writing, and at least one external                   assessment.
