If you do not have a GCSE or an 'O' Level you can work towards a City & Guilds equivalent. This can help you improve your everyday skills and increase your confidence.

Practical sessions are run during the day and evening. We offer courses at all levels in small groups; there will be an initial assessment to find out which level is right for you.

Please note: these courses are for people whose first language is English. For those for whom English is not a first language, courses are available through the ESOL team, call 01252 407185 for more information.
