Overview

This course is designed to assess your current working level of English and help you progress from that level forward. You will work through a range of smaller stepping stone units to help grow your confidence with reading, writing, speaking and listening. 

This will then give you the opportunity to work up the levels from Entry 1 to Level 2. You will be required to come in for an initial assessment before you can enrol on this course.

Please contact our Admissions Team on 023 9387 9999 to arrange your initial assessment before applying.

This course is for students who do not already have a grade C/4 or above in GCSE English Language. If you have already achieved a Level 2 Functional Skill in English it is suggested that you progress to a GCSE English Language Course.

(You will be required to come in for an initial assessment before you can enrol on this course)

The course covers:

  • reading – skimming, scanning and intensive reading including looking at purpose and structure
  • writing – a range of formats, word sentence and text level including SPAG (spelling, punction and grammar)
  • Speaking and listening – including discussions and presentations

 

The course is run on the main College campus and at various off-site venues in the Hampshire area. We have daytime and evening English courses, run in 2 semesters. The first is September-February and then February-June.

We use a variety of teaching methods including:

  • Group work
  • Research
  • Kineasthic activities
  • 1:1 teaching
  • Using new technologies
  • Classroom based assessment work

In class and external assessment.

You’re here to learn and you want to learn, and the lecturers make it fun. You don’t have to come to college but you want to come to college.

Natalie Thorpe, A Level student

There are great teachers here. This college has felt more like a university than a school, and it’s definitely lived up to that more grown-up feel.

Vicky Lipscombe, A Level student

My experience at the college has been really good, it’s been really rewarding, all the lecturers were so lovely and supportive there’s no way I could have done it without them - the teaching has been outstanding.
