English for Speakers of Other Languages

If English is not your first language, join our ESOL courses. These will help you to learn more about life and work in the UK.

Daytime courses are usually 3 times per week and evening courses are twice per week. There are courses from Pre-Entry to Level 1. Before you start a course, you will have an assessment to make sure you are on the right course at the right level.

In the first semester you will develop your communication skills in speaking, listening and English grammar. In the second semester, the courses focus on reading, writing and grammar skills. Alongside your ESOL class at entry 3 or Level 1 you may choose to enrol on another course to further develop your skills for example maths, ICT, Childcare or Business & Administration. Exams take place at the end of each course (if appropriate).

Before you join a course, you will have an assessment. This is to make sure you are placed on the right course at the right level. If your level is above Level 1 ESOL, you will be referred to our English courses.
