GEM: English and Maths

Life gets interesting when you’re good at English and maths!

It’s about a future full of promise whatever route you take. The best employers will want to give you a job, and a place at university will be yours for the taking.

That's why, at West Herts College, we're determined to change the way we use and think about English and maths.

GEM is a new way of learning English and maths, special to West Herts College. We want GEM to make a real difference to the way we use words and numbers, which is why we've set up a brand new team of specialist GEM tutors whose job it is to bring these essential subjects to life.

Your own personal GEM programme

If you have GCSE grades A* - C (4 - 9) we'll build GEM around your main course of study, enhancing your skills and developing new ones. If you haven't yet achieved these grades in either subject, you'll take GEM classes and work towards resitting your GCSE exams.

The jobs I've had since graduating would not have been possible if I didn't have the support from my lecturers.
