Successful completion of the ESOL programme offers you a wide range of vocational and academic courses to which you can apply to take your new skills further. You can also progress to the next level of ESOL in the following year.
There are no formal entry requirements. You will need to complete an English test in advance to check your level of language, followed by an interview. If you have previously studied ESOL you would be expected to have passed the previous level, before starting a higher level.
