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.

The teaching and support was absolutely brilliant, they couldn’t have done anything more or anything better, if I had any questions my lecturers would always stay behind to help me if I needed it and their emails were always open, it was second to none. This college is the best by far.

Amber Searle, BTEC student

There are lots of people at the college, each studying a diverse range of courses, people from all different areas come to study here, it creates a sense of community, there is a huge social aspect to college life across all courses.

Lee Backhouse, BTEC student

College is definitely worth all the effort you put in, you get to meet lots of different people and it’s amazing.
