ESOL: English for Speakers of Other Languages
Our ESOL classes has proved to be a very popular and demanding service. Working in partnership with Glasgow Clyde College (Langside Campus) and Glasgow Life, we are currently offering 4 ESOL classes ranging from Access 2 Literacies (beginners class) to Access Level 3, as well as ESOL testing for students. The testing is a requirement for all students who wish to take part in ESOL classes, as it allows tutors to establish what level of class would best suit the students needs.
We are currently members of the ESOL providers forum and with their support we were able to co-ordinate conclusively with other local ESOL providers. We were able to ensure that a range of classes were provided locally and students had the ability to progress from complete beginners to more advanced levels. Citizenships skills is conducted in all ESOL classes and we ensure that all components are met with the Home Office requirements for naturalisations applications.
The growing demand for this service has over exceeded availability of classes and therefore places were fulfilled from an ample waiting list as soon as they become available. We are also currently reviewing our service, seeking out funds to introduce crèche facilities for parents who wish to take part in ESOL classes.
