What are the entry requirements?

There are no formal entry requirements for enrolment onto ESOL courses, and a full assessment of a learner’s English ability will be made to show you which level and stream of learning is best for you.

How is it taught?

Classes are taught over six hours per week, over two 3 hour sessions. The sessions between Monday and Friday and are on a morning, an afternoon or a Monday and Tuesday evening.

What else do you need to know?

Course levels cover a wide range of abilities from Pre-Entry to Level 2 and successful completion of all courses are based on an assessment at the end of the course. Assessments are based upon the English skills that have been worked on throughout the course.

Progression is usually, based upon successful completion of the previous level, to the next stream of English skills. For example, completing Entry 3 Speaking and Listening could lead to enrolment onto Entry 3 Functional Skills.
