ESOL – English for Speakers of Other Languages

Our ESOL courses are for individuals who want to live in the UK, but English is not their first language. It helps to develop the four foundational skills (listening, reading, writing and speaking) with relevant topics about life in the UK. In addition, students complete an AQA accredited Step Into English  module for which they receive a certificate on completion.

We offer only face to face courses. To register, call us now on 01234 328100 or e-mail

Once registered, a member of our team will be in touch and you will be asked to attend an initial advice session, fill in an application form and complete a placement test.

Are you an employer looking to help your workforce improve their English language skills? Contact us to discuss how we can work together.
