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 technical 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.
