Speakers of other languages can improve their English and enhance their career prospects through our ESOL Skills for Life course. 

The Skills for Life courses are designed for adults (16+) whose first language is not English.

Available courses

Our ESOL courses are accredited by City and Guilds.

We cater for various ability levels offering Entry Level 1, Entry Level 2, Entry Level 3 and Level 1 courses.

Courses are free of charge subject to eligibility.

Course aims

The courses enable learners to improve their spoken and written English as well as their reading and listening skills.

Candidates will encounter topics that are both familiar and useful to them as learners of English.


After successfully completing the course, learners will be awarded a recognised City and Guilds ESOL Skills for Life certificate.

This certificate may enable you to claim either indefinite leave to remain or British citizenship.
