ESOL courses are for adults whose first language is not English.

Our full-time ESOL courses cover a range of levels, including:

-upper intermediate.

Depending on your level, you will study reading, writing, speaking and listening in the English language.

Higher levels include grammar and vocabulary, introducing yourself, spelling and writing skills, completing application forms and learning useful language to help you in everyday life outside the College. 

All full-time students will study Functional Skills Maths at the appropriate level and have the opportunity to gain an Edexcel Functional Skills Maths qualification at the end of the year.

You will also have the opportunity to develop your IT skills to prepare you for work or further education.

Once you apply, we will assess your current English level to make sure you are in the correct class.

You do not need any qualifications to join this programme. You will be given an initial assessment at interview before you join the class to check your current level.

Typically, a full-time course would be one class per day for five days per week (morning or afternoon).
Average class size: 12 (maximum 14).
Full attendance is expected at classes, events and visits.

You will be given assessments at the end of every unit.

If you’re aged 19 or over you might qualify for an Advanced Learner Loan. It’s easy to apply for and you won’t have to pay anything back until you’re earning over £25,000.

You will, however, have to pay any awarding body/assessment fees (unless you are on a first full level 2 course). * If you are in receipt of Working Tax Credit or receive other allowances, you may be eligible to claim concessionary rates.
