However, your tutor will carry out a Diagnostic Assessment on the first session of the course to establish that you are still at the right level for the course 

What level is the course and do I require particular skills, experience or prior qualifications? 

This is an Entry 3 course for adults. 

This level is suitable for those who are not a complete beginner and have a basic working knowledge of English or have already achieved a full Entry 1 qualification or all Entry 1 modules 

What topics does the course cover?

  • Use connectors to join sentences and improve your writing 
  • Expand your vocabulary and learn to add descriptions with adjectives. 

How will I be taught and assessed? Will there be any work outside the class? 

You will learn in a supportive and welcoming environment with an emphasis on your discovering how to do and complete tasks, with guidance from the tutor.  

You will work on your own and with other students on different tasks so you are always practising important in-demand life and work skills such as problem-solving, decision-making, prioritising, negotiating, collaborating and independence.  

You will learn in a step by step manner so you can complete challenging tasks in enjoyable and relaxing ways. Your tutor will also work with you individually so you know how to improve and how to work in a way that improves your learning.  

You will need to do work outside the classroom 


Are there any other costs or equipment I need to get?
