This unit focuses on English reading and writing of various kinds. You will develop the skills and concepts required for:
Informational, expressive and creative writing, including summary and report writing, writing which reflects, persuades or argues and writing in literary genres
Reading informational and literary texts of recognised quality and for gaining access to information technologies
Individual talk, discussion and listening.
This unit is a component of the English National 5 (SCQF Level 5) course.
There are no formal entry requirements, although you would benefit from having studied English at the level of National 4. This course is also ideal for progression from Creative Writing 1 (E9X5 10).
If you require an entry qualification for a full-time course, you may wish to complete the remaining units of the English course at National 5 level. If you wish to do another part-time course, you could progress to Literature 1, which is a Higher level unit.
Please contact your local learning centre to find out the start date of the course.
