Is English your second language? Are you looking to improve your English whilst working towards a qualification? We offer courses for English speakers of other languages (ESOL) at all levels.

An ESOL qualification will make it easier to find work in Britain and will enable you to undertake further study in a subject of your choice.

Course details

We offer ESOL courses at levels ranging from entry-level one to level two. All courses develop your skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing. These qualifications have been developed in response to a call by the government and employers to have an increased level of basic English literacy in everyday life, education and employment. They are based on the Adult ESOL Core Curriculum and the National Standards for Adult Literacy. Our qualifications are accredited and nationally recognised. This course is also recognised by the Home Office UK Border Agency.

This course is available alongside our study programme, training in motor vehicle, construction, hair and beauty, business administration or teaching assistant.

How to enrol

To enrol in an ESOL course you will need to book an interview, which may include a pre-assessment in English. You can do this by phoning 0191 298 6952 and choosing option 3.
