As part of our ESOL Skills for Life course, you will have a personal tutor who will have regular tutorials with you to check your progress. You will also use computers as part of your ICT lessons and to aid your studies. The Learning Hub is also available for you to study in outside of class.



There are a number of trips and visits planned to help build your language skills in day to day life. These include cinema trips to hear different English accents and dialects and visits to Oxford and London to learn about British culture.

Without ESOL I wouldn’t be where I am now, it gave me the opportunity to develop my English and further my studies."
