Some suggestions...


    Sometimes things don’t go to plan! Whatever your individual circumstances, if you recently missed out on the grades at school, our Kick-start and GCSE Plus courses are designed to get you back on track. Whether your goal is to progress to a further education course, apprenticeship or employment, we can help you gain the knowledge, skills and confidence to move forward.

    Alternatively, if you’re an adult looking to brush up on your maths and/or English skills for everyday life or you are looking to improve on your GCSE grades, we can help! We offer maths and English courses at a range of levels. Our expert tutors will support you to develop your skills and achieve more than you thought possible.

    Ethan Rogers, Kickstart Ethan Rogers, Kickstart “I missed my GCSEs at school due to illness, so I was looking for another way to progress. I came to BSDC to study Kickstart which gave me the chance to learn at my own pace and start afresh. I then went on to take GCSEs in English and Maths. I’m over the moon with my results, and I’m now going on to study TV and Film Production at BSDC."
    Ellie Whittingham, GCSE Plus Ellie Whittingham, GCSE Plus “I was home-schooled and I was very nervous when I started college, but I made friends and quickly moved up to the GCSE+ course. I have now passed my GCSEs and I am going on to do a Level 3 Business course. Once I have achieved that, I would like to go on to university and then set up my own business in the future!”
    Hannah Noble, GCSE Maths Hannah Noble, GCSE Maths "I got a D in my Maths GCSE at school and it’s something that I wanted to improve on. I have been a stay at home mum for six years so I decided it was time to do something for myself. I really enjoyed the course and I’m just so pleased to have come out with a Grade 6. This will help me if I decide to look for a job in the future."
    Gavin Bagnall, GCSE English Gavin Bagnall, GCSE English “I got a D grade in GCSE English at school and it always bothered me. I have now gained a grade 8 - not only have I got the grades I need to undertake an apprenticeship degree in the future, but I now have more confidence in my English skills. The tutors were amazing throughout the course; I can’t thank everyone enough for their support!”
