  • Is this course for you?

    Do you need to improve your skills in English language, or to achieve a recognised qualification in English language? South Staffordshire College’s ESOL courses could be exactly what you’re looking for. Our classes are fun and friendly and are taught by a team of experienced ESOL teachers. If you’re a beginner, our community-based courses could be ideal for you. These will focus on improving your basic English skills and will give you the chance to practice these without having to take a final exam.

    If you are already working at an intermediate level or above and need a qualification either for work or personal progression, our City & Guilds courses are the route you need to take. Offering courses at Entry 1-3, Level 1 and Level 2, you have the opportunity work towards units in speaking and listening, reading and writing. Choose to study one or all of them over the academic year.

    Typically, units last 15 weeks, 3 hours per week in college or online.

  • Required qualifications

    You do not need any qualifications to gain entry onto the Community based free courses but need to know how to write the alphabet in English. To gain entry onto the exam-based courses, you will need to provide evidence of an existing qualification at Entry 1 or 2.

  • What skills will I develop?

    Courses include focused work on spoken language skills to support you in everyday life and work situations. You will speak with other members of your group in each lesson as well as your teacher, learning how to give your views and ideas, ask questions, and communicate on a range of subjects suitable to your level of learning.

    Writing skills and reading skills are offered at a range of levels depending upon your level of skill when you join. Depending upon your entry level, you may work on letter writing skills, form filling skills or, at higher levels, report writing, for example. You will read a variety of texts, mainly non-fiction, to support the development of your vocabulary and understanding.

    Grammar will be focused on as part of each of these skill development aspects, challenging you further as you progress in your course.

  • Careers

    Entry level qualifications will enable you to begin working in a variety of roles, for example voluntary work. Higher level qualifications will enable you to apply for work in offices and industry, for example, depending upon your existing knowledge and skill levels.

  • English and maths

    Learning English can help you progress in work and also to integrate into a local community. If you’re looking to learn English to help support children, then these courses will be ideal for you to take the first step into learning English to help with tasks such as your child’s homework. For learners who are hoping to progress at work, English qualifications can be the key that will open the door to progression and promotion.

  • Other important information

    Firstly, all of our ESOL courses are free of charge, all we ask is that we have your full commitment, including weekly attendance.

    Our courses are certified and assessed via either evidence collected in class (Entry 1 and 2) or externally set exam (Entry 3, Level 1, Level 2). Learning materials will be provided for you during your classes, however you need to provide your own stationery (pens, pencils, writing paper etc) and you may also benefit from buying a dictionary which has English in and your first language.

    If you decide to enrol on one of South Staffordshire College’s ESOL courses, you will be expected to attend regularly. This is especially important if you are taking exams as part of your course, as attendance is vital to achievement.
