Course Overview

This course offers short English programmes for those who need ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) qualifications to progress in life and work in the UK.

Each course covers one skill and leads to a qualification (Cambridge Award) in Reading, Writing or Speaking and Listening.

The course is ideal if you are a working migrant or if you need an award to progress into further studies. The course will also give you a formal qualification if you need to progress in your job at times which fit in around work.

You can study either during the daytime or in the evenings on this course.

Course Highlights

You will learn with people from all over the world and be able to take part in different activities such as fun classes which use games, music, and your daily experiences to build your confidence with English.

Other highlights of the course include:

  • A dedicated tutor who supports you with individual advice and support.
  • Flexible times of classes so that you can fit your studies around full time work.
  • An option to do more than one course if you want to develop more than one skill.
  • Excellent opportunities for making friends from different countries and cultures who, like you, are looking to stay in the UK.
  • 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 different 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.

Career Opportunities & Further Study

Many successful students continue their studies in a different skill at the same level. Others choose to continue with the same skill at a higher level.

Improving your English skills can help you in any career, and many of our learners are promoted at work because of the improvements they made to their English skills.


Reading and Writing courses involve an exam. Speaking and listening courses are assessed by a practical assessment with a Cambridge examiner.

You will have plenty of support and practice from excellent tutors who help you prepare for the exams.

Entry Requirements

There are no formal entry requirements.  We test your abilities before you start and place you on the course that best fits the skills you already have.

You must show at interview that you are committed to complete the course and keen to develop all of your work skills, not just your English.
