Course Overview

English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) courses are language programmes for people living within the UK who need to develop their English language skills for work, further learning and everyday life.

Students work towards a City & Guilds ESOL Skills for Life qualification which are ideal for anyone living in the UK who need to improve their understanding and use of written or spoken English. This qualification could help you get a job, a promotion at work, prepare for future study or be able to interact confidently in an English-speaking environment.

The revised ESOL Skills for Life qualifications cover 5 levels –

Beginner, Elementary, Pre-intermediate, Intermediate and Upper-intermediate (Entry 1 to Level 2).
