ESOL courses

English for Speakers of Other Languages

We run highly successful ESOL courses at our Central Brighton Campus for young people and adults. 

We have a range of courses to suit all learners. These include qualification courses (Ascentis Skills for Life) from Entry to Level 2, as well as integrated skills courses to support students with literacy and employability skills. We also offer a Pre-Entry course for students with little or no literacy. 

New to 20/21: 
  • 16+ full-time ESOL study programme. This will start 19 October 2020
  • Employability for ESOL courses
  • Digital skills for ESOL courses
Our ESOL courses will help you to:
  • Gain a nationally recognised ESOL qualification and certificate
  • Develop your employability skills
  • Develop your digital skills
  • Get extra support if you cannot read or write
  • Give you extra support if you are a young refugee and asylum seeker
  • Help you to make friends through coffee mornings and enrichment activities
  • Give you clear progression paths onto jobseekers courses or other vocational courses in the College
  • Get advice about education and training opportunities 

Our ESOL courses are part-time and you will have two lessons a week either in the morning, afternoon or evening from Monday to Friday.

September

Please note that for September, most of our ESOL courses will have a blended delivery. You will be taught in small groups with one lesson with the teacher in the College. The second lesson will be a remote lesson which you will do at home.
