Entry requirements

No qualifications are required, but you will need to have been living in the UK for no more than two years.

You will also need to sit a short test to check your literacy level, to ensure that your writing skills are at Entry Level 3.


During the course you will be assessed in a variety of ways, including a portfolio, tests, presentations and witness statements.

Future opportunities

The aim is for you to achieve qualifications at Entry Level 3, including English, which will enable you to progress to a Level 1 programme. Successful students who pass English at Level 1 and have an excellent attendance, punctuality and work record, may have the opportunity to move to a Level 2 programme within the college, such as a BTEC Certificate. However, students are individually assessed and some students may be able to progress more rapidly to higher level courses.
