What's it all about?

Do you need help to develop your skills and confidence in English? Do you shy away from helping your kids with their homework? Or perhaps you need to gain qualifications to progress with your career?

Our English courses could be your stepping-stone to moving into further education or getting out into the world of work. Whether you want to improve your existing skills or you’re starting from scratch, we have a range of courses for different levels and abilities.

We know that English can be challenging, but our lecturers will give you the support and confidence you need to get the grade you want. Some courses are free, you don’t need any qualifications to get started, and you’ll get a personal learning plan that will set your goals and chart your progress. What’s more, if you don’t already have a grade 4/C or above, then you don’t have to pay anything for your course.

Please note fees are quoted for one year only.
