Our Absolute Beginners English course is for people who struggle and lack confidence with their own reading and writing ability. You will be invited to attend college for one evening prior to the course start date to meet your teacher and learn more about the course.

There are no formal assessments, just the joy of maths. However, we will need to check you are making progress through a variety of practical, written and speaking activities. You will need to record your progress on an individual learning plan which will follow your journey with English and your teacher will provide you with regular feedback.
