Our adult ESOL programmes are designed to be flexible, fitting around your particular commitments and circumstances with morning, afternoon and evening classes available from a number of learning centres around Newham.

This programme is suitable for students aged 19+ who are non-native speakers of English and would like to improve their English skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening.

Course content

All the courses are based on the ESOL Core Curriculum and involve the development of Speaking and Listening, Reading and Writing. The course focuses on everyday English and practical communication skills. You will also develop your grammar knowledge and understanding.

The courses are part-time and involve attendance for 4-5 hours a week. You will need to attend classes regularly and will be assessed throughout the course.

We offer Ascentis qualifications in Entry Level Awards, and Level 1 and 2 awards in English for reading, writing, speaking and listening.

Entry requirements

There are no formal entry requirements, but all new students will need to complete an initial assessment to determine their level of English and assign you to the correct level of study that best suits your needs. No prior preparation is necessary for this assessment.


When you achieve the appropriate standard, you will be able to progress to the next level ESOL course. You will also be able to progress onto vocational courses if you wish to do so.

Fees and funding

If you are aged 19+, how much you pay for your course and any additional costs will depend on a number of factors. Learn more about course fees and finances.

We have a range of financial support options available to help you while you’re studying. Find out what support you may be eligible for.
