At Broadstairs College, we are proud to work with migrants and refugees through our range of study programmes that support speakers of other languages with different levels. All programmes are from 2-3 days a week. The Pre-ESOL programme runs from September until July over 38 weeks.
Our Pre-ESOL (Pre 16) unaccompanied school children programme is aimed for students and newcomers who have very little control of English. It will support to move into the mainstream ESOL by improving your English language skills, maths and IT.
We have a wonderful team of progression mentors who will provide pastoral care and support with travelling.
All courses are full-time and include English tuition alongside maths, ICT, creative and catering.
Students will be assessed through formative and summative assessments conducted internally within the college.
At the start, there will be an initial assessment where we will find out how we can support you according to your individual needs and requirements.
The ongoing assessments is checking up along the way as you progress during the learning cycle.
1:1 tutoring and mentoring will be provided to support you throughout your learning journey.
By the end of the Pre-ESOL course, you will have developed your personal study skills as well as English, maths and IT. Successful completion of the pre-ESOL course will allow you to progress on to our mainstream ESOL programme.
No formal qualifications are required.
Assessments are held prior to the start of the programme and students enrol on the pre-ESOL course
