WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?
ESOL is all about integration and inclusivity. You will have the opportunity to make new friends and learn more about British culture and values. You will be part of a welcoming and diverse community. It will increase your confidence in speaking, writing and reading English. It will develop your language and communication skills and give you the life and work skills you need to progress to other programmes at the College and into employment. You can enrol throughout the year and will be entered for nationally recognised assessments when you are ready.
WHAT WILL I DO?
You will develop a range of skills, including reading, writing, speaking and listening. Your study programme will also include a qualification in maths appropriate for your level of study. Reading and writing assessments are based on understanding and reproducing texts from familiar, everyday formats such as appointment letters and newspaper articles. Speaking assessments are conducted by your course tutor and take the form of discussions and individual speaking tasks. There are opportunities to join in with regular sporting activities organised by the College and you will also be encouraged to take part in the National Citizen Service.
WHAT CAN I DO NEXT?
Upon completion of your Entry 3 or Level 1 programme you can progress on to other vocational or academic areas within the College which could lead onto a range of careers or higher education. You may also progress to GCSE Maths and English.
