Entry requirements

You do not need any qualifications to start this course; however you must be 19 or over, a UK/EEA citizen and have a minimum Level 1 ability in spoken English. You will be asked to attend a short informal interview and undertake a free assessment before your course starts to help determine your existing skill level.

Course content

During the course you will cover topics including:

  •     Reading

  •     ’Sounds-Write’ - Phonics For Adult Learners.

The phonics programme Sounds-Write is incorporated into Entry level classes to help learners improve their basic literacy skills.
