English Language Skills & ESOL

English Language Skills and ESOL Information and Advice

Find out more about our courses in English Language Skills and ESOL (English Speakers of Other Language) by registering for one of the information sessions available below. 

For ESOL, you will be asked to undertake a short online assessment before the information session, to help us advise you on an appropriate course.  If you have certificates for any qualifications already, bring them with you. 

During the first session, the tutor will explain about our courses and advise of options that are suitable for you. 

Our English Language Skills and ESOL courses are offered online as well as across Telford in community venues. We run morning and afternoon sessions during school term time only.  Our ESOL courses are offered at different levels and provide an opportunity to work towards a City and Guilds qualification in ESOL.
