No prior qualifications are required.
You will be encouraged to undertake a range of tasks in a small classroom environment with support from the teacher in preparation for moving you through the level and preparing you for the exam at the end of the course.

Following the initial assessment to identify your level, you will then work on your English skills at the appropriate level.

Exams can be taken at various times throughout the course and your teacher will discuss with you the best time for you to sit the exam.
Following the completion of ESOL Level 2, you can move onto a GCSE English qualification or Apprenticeship.
