My music teacher literally cannot teach the composition part of my music GCSE, can we, as a class, get special consideration from the exam board (Edexcel)? Teacher does not speak English, and is not able to deliver any part of this course.

You can't. The regs say:

2.3 Candidates will NOT be eligible for special consideration if preparation for or performance in the examination is affected by:
2.3.8 the failure of the centre to prepare candidates properly for the examination for whatever reason;

Thank you for this,this is very helpful.We do not need special consideration for the exam (in June) as there are loads of teaching materials online for us to use. Performances are also ok, We have sorted these out between ourselves as a class. Composition is harder, I have taught the class one composition but I will struggle to teach two pieces. The music teacher is new and does not have a clue, there is no Head of department either. What if we have only one composition each? It does not seem fair that we are all going to suffer for this situation when we, as a class have worked hard for two years (last year we had a good teacher, but they left in July last year).

The same regs cover the NEA, I'm afraid you need to do both compositions. YOur bests chance is to complain to your school about the lack of teaching.
