How will I be taught?

You will work on a variety of activities as a class and in small groups or pairs. This allows the tutor to attend to individual needs as well as to direct the learning of the group as a whole. Homework will be an essential part of the course.


An individual learning plan of work (ILP) is developed between you and the tutor. You will have tutorials with your tutor when you will be able to discuss your progress.

Additionally, your work will be regularly marked by your tutor who will give you oral/written feedback.

What do I need to bring with me?

Dictionary, ring binder for handouts and homework, paper and pen.

What can I do next?

Students may progress to ESOL next level or other courses. For further information, you can email us at: SkillsDartford@kent.gov.uk

What do I need to join the course

ESOL courses are available for those who have lived in the UK for at least three years. Other students are also welcome upon payment of an overseas fee. However, acceptance on a Skills Plus ESOL course does not constitute an immigration sponsorship and no Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) certificate will be issued.
Before enrolling on an ESOL course you will need to complete an initial assessment. Please book an interview at your local centre.
