English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)
Whether you are a complete beginner or just need that extra help to make you confident in speaking, reading and writing English, we have the right ESOL course for you to make you more confident, skilled and independent.
We offer the Gateway Qualifications Entry Level Awards and Level 1 Awards in English for Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening. There are courses not linked to exams, ESOL Plus courses combined with another exciting curriculum area or specialised courses for complete beginners.
All ESOL courses are free for everyone.
To enrol on an ESOL, English or Maths course you will be assessed. Once you have been assessed, we will offer you a place on an appropriate course where the teacher will discuss and plan with you what skills you would like to work on.
All ESOL courses are part-time with a variety of lesson times available morning, afternoon and evening. Courses are normally 12 weeks long unless stated otherwise.
