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

Assessment

You are assessed weekly with progress charted on a personal plan. When you are ready and able, you can be assessed using practical exams which lead to Award qualifications in Speaking & Listening, Reading or Writing.

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 the interview that you are committed to full time studies and keen to develop all of your work skills, not just your English.
