Virtual learning and studying at home are not just the ‘new normal’ for young people across the county – it is also the challenge facing hundreds of adult students at Derby College Group (DCG) who are juggling their studies with work and family life.

Mother-of-one, Lauren Burns (24), from Ilkeston, one of the many mature students who sat GCSE examinations at Derby College Group (DCG) this summer, is celebrating a Grade 7 (equivalent to an A grade) in English.

Three sisters who started their UK learner journey at Derby College Group (DCG) have returned to thank the lecturers who supported them.

As many school pupils celebrate their successes in GCSE examinations today (Thursday August 23), Derby College is also applauding the successes of their students who have undertaken resits in GCSE English and Maths, enabling them to progress in their study and career plans.

Derby College offers GCSE Maths and English programmes at its campuses to support young people who have not previously achieved the required Grade 4 (formerly grade C) in these core subjects upon leaving school. This year saw 1,800 16-19 year olds sitting GCSE Maths and/or English and of those, around 50% were successful in improving their grades.
