There are a wide variety of options for students wishing to pursue a career that requires English skills. Some may be interested in roles in journalism, publishing or politics, however these may require additional study. Other areas to consider are media, marketing and PR, business and teaching. Students may consider direct entry into employment or further training.
A key course for students planning to continue on to university to study subjects such as English language and linguistics, journalism, advertising, creative writing, law, sociology, psychology and teaching. It also provides a strong grounding for those wishing to pursue many other subject areas at degree level.
I came to The Henley College from Holmer Green Senior School. I chose this course because I've always had a strong passion for creative writing and English Language and I felt that the course content would allow me to explore this further.
I've enjoyed having the opportunity to work with like-minded individuals who have allowed me to gain new skills and better myself in my work but also as a person. I'm hoping that this course will provide me with various opportunities, including the choice of going on to study English Language at university.
The course has enabled me to explore my creativity through writing articles and persuasive writing pieces.
