Pre Entry English ESOL for Job Seekers
This is a course for job seekers who are beginners with the English language.
If you are interested in the course you must be referred to the college by your Work Coach at the Job Centre.
‘…ESOL learners develop confidence in their spoken language skills in different situations. This enables them to take an active part in their local communities and develop their understanding of life in modern Britain.’ Ofsted, 2018
This course has been developed with Job Centres to help meet the needs of job seekers who have a language barrier. The course focuses on English in the context of employment to help you move towards getting a job.
Due to the current COVID-19 situation and with health and safety of our students as a priority, we have redesigned this course to include a mixture of classroom-based and online learning.
