ESOL stands for English for Speakers of Other Languages.

If your first language is not English, Skills and Training Network (STN) offer ESOL education courses to help develop your speaking, listening, reading, writing and communication skills for everyday life, work and study. We also accept spouses and dependents of European Economic Area (EEA) passport holders where the spouses and dependents have been living in the EEA for one year. You can take general English language courses from Entry 1 (beginners) to Level 2 (advanced) and gain a nationally recognised ESOL Skills for Life qualification. All courses include a diagnostic tutorial so students can devise an individual learning plan with their tutor. There will be opportunities to work in the computer suite which will help you combine your ICT skills with language learning.
