Embedded in our Social Mobility Programme, our English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) provision offers women the opportunity to improve their English and literacy skills.

Our highly effective and dedicated team of tutors have many years of experience in delivering courses to women with some of the most challenging language and literacy needs.

We offer women the opportunity to access the ESOL provision from pre-entry to entry level 3 as well as a literacy class for English speakers with low level literacy skills. The courses are accredited by Pearson Edexcel and learners are able to take exams if they wish. We also offer weekly ESOL conversation support sessions over the phone, led by a volunteer.

To find out more about our ESOL provision, please call or email Margaret.
