GCSEs, ESOL & Functional Skills success stories
The ESOL course was like one big family, we all supported each and other and I’m still close with lots of my classmates.
The classroom of ESOL was always filled with joy and enthusiasm, as the activities that were carried out required the participation of all the classmates, never leaving any student alone.
Universities and employers usually ask for GCSE maths qualification so I’m delighted to have achieved a Grade 7 in my results!
Everything I have learnt has been so useful and has definitely set me up on the correct path for reaching my career goals.
My computer skills have developed a lot since starting this course which I have my teacher to thank for.
My course has definitely improved my English skills and has opened up a lot of opportunities for me. The teaching is really good and I get fantastic support from my tutors.
