Young ESOL

With 80% of its learners having English as a second language, Newham College has established a Centre of Excellence in English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) to provide clearer routes into work.

The Centre of Excellence aims to provide learners of all abilities with the opportunity to progress not only to entry-level employment but also to higher-level and technically skilled work. The Centre of Excellence works closely with many industries, including health, construction, early years & childcare, fashion & tailoring and catering.

Linked closely to the needs of employers, potential students and their career paths, the Centre of Excellence will provide opportunities for those who already have higher level qualifications from outside the UK but limited English language skills, to continue their chosen career in this country.

Newham College has really helped me to improve my English, but more than that, I’ve developed my skills: teamwork, creativity, organisation, perseverance and computer skills. I’ve gained valuable experience for my CV and for my future studies, I am applying for university to study accounting because I really love Maths. I recommend Newham College as a good place to study as it offers a lot of opportunities.
