Course description

This course is for you if you live in the UK and need to learn English either to continue with your studies or to find work.

As part of the course you will take an exam called "Skills for Life". This exam is offered at five levels (Entry 1 to Level 2) and learners are placed in classes corresponding to their initial level of English. Students who make enough progress can either move class or take more than one exam during the year.

Suitability - Who should attend?

You will have regular tests in your class to check on your progress and understanding. At the end of a level you will be given a test to check that you are ready to move up to the next level (at least 75% test result).
During and/or at the end of your course (depending on the progress made) you will sit an official English exam as well as a Maths exam (if you don't have GCSE grade C/grade 4 when you start your ESOL programme).
The English exams consist of speaking and listening, reading and writing.

Your teachers and College specialist staff provide both learning and personal support. Your teachers schedule regular individual meetings with you (tutorials) to check that you are making at least the expected progress.
We have specialist staff in the College who can support students outside of class if they have specific learning needs.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

Level: 1

Continuing Studies

You can enrol on this course as long as you are 18 on 31 August, as many times as you need in order to achieve your target level of English.

Once you have reached your target level of English, you will be able to apply for other courses, at Cambridge Regional College or outside. However, you will need to research the courses you are interested in very carefully as some programmes have very specific entry requirements.

It is recommended that you try to achieve Skills for Life Level 1 before you apply for a vocational course at level 2 or level 3 and Skills for Life Level 2 if you want to pursue academic studies (such as GCSE or A Level).

Learners on this programme have progressed to vocational or academic courses, depending on their interests, their educational background and their level of English, either at Cambridge Regional College or in other schools/colleges in the UK or back in their own countries.
