Course details may be subject to change

This ESOL course is perfect for adult learners looking to develop their skills and confidence in using English. You will develop your ability to express and communicate your own ideas & emotions fluently and accurately.

There is an end of year exam which will assess your speaking, listening, reading and writing skills.

Entry Criteria

This course is designed for people whose first language is not English. There are no academic entry requirements but the offer of a place is dependent on the outcome of the initial interview and assessment. The applicant's language skills must fall within the range of Beginner to Advanced.

What are the next steps?

Applicants will receive advice and guidance from the member of the curriculum team and will then be invited to attend an assessment of their skills. The assessment usually takes approximately an hour.

Study Aims

The course aims to provide you with the English and academic skills needed for life, work and study in the UK. It also aims to support you with integration into UK life and to equip you with language skills to enable you to make a contribution to your community.

You will develop an understanding of grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation, and learn about different varieties of English (for example, formal and informal speech and writing). Students develop their accuracy and their fluency in using English in different situations and have practice talking about different topics of interest.

Modules Studied Much of the course content at each level is based around common situations that you will face in the UK, however, parts of the course may be dictated by the needs of the individual and the group. Teachers work with students to set individual targets for learning so that the course is able to meet the needs and requirements of each individual taking part.

Times of Delivery

Any times indicated are based on current courses and may be subject to change in future years. Full timetables will be confirmed at the start of each course.

Teaching and Assessment

Regular assessments take place throughout the course. Progress is measured against each individual's starting point. There is also an end of year exam which assesses your level of English. There is an option to enter for an external exam, leading to a Skills for Life qualification (Entry 1-Level 2) which is recognised by employers and educational institutions in the UK.
