English for adults

These classes are for people whose first language is English and are looking to improve their skills

Our friendly and supportive tutors will work with you to find out which areas you would like to improve and put together an individual plan. There will also be a chance to study for a nationally recognised qualification.

We run courses in the daytime and evening. If you do not have a minimum grade of C in English at GCSE, then this course is free.

We are not yet hosting English for adults programmes on this website.

To find out more about the subjects we offer or to apply online, please visit our county-specific websites below. Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis, so don't delay!

The teaching staff were fantastic, and everyone on the course helped and supported each other. We backed each other up when we still weren’t sure about what we were capable of achieving.” Graham, Access to HE: Humanities
