These ESOL courses are for young people aged 16-18 who live in the UK permanently, or who have asylum seeker / refugee status, and who want to improve their English by having face to face teaching and learning in college.

You will be able to meet and study with other people from other countries, share experiences and learn together, over a full academic year. Courses are available at Entry Levels – Level 2, including Pre-Entry, during the day.

The course covers a wide range of General English topics, from personal and social development, to employment, the environment and culture.

Depending on your course, you will also have exam preparation lessons to practise listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.

I came to the UK in May 2020 during lockdown and didn’t speak any English, so to pass all my ESOL courses from Level 1 to Level 3 is a huge achievement for me. College has been amazing – I have learned so much about different cultures and I have made great friends who support each other!
