Course Overview

This course is for you if you speak English as a second or other language. We offer exciting classes to help you improve your skills from Pre-Entry to Level 1 which are taught in 2½ days per week in College.

As well as improving your speaking, listening, reading and writing skills you will prepare to progress to another college course or the next level of English.

You will also improve the skills you need to either get a job or improve the skills you already have such as working in a team, communication skills and researching future careers.

You will have the opportunity to attend different events at the College which are attended by employers so you can find out about different career choices.

You will have tutors who will help you be successful and make sure you are prepared for your next steps in your learning.

Career Opportunities & Further Study

You can progress from one level of our English for Progression courses to the next.

After Entry Level 3 you are ready to progress into employment or onto any of the courses offered by the College at Level 1.

Many students from Level 1 go onto higher level courses but continue with their English studies with us at Level 2.


The employability parts of your course are assessed using practical tasks and activities which you do in class and collect as a portfolio.

Functional skills are assessed using practical exams which you take when your teacher feels you are ready.
