Would you like to improve your written english skills but hate the thought of sitting in a classroom? Have you dreamed of writing a short story or a childrens book but feel that your english isn't good enough? Well, here is your chance to improve your english and find your hidden talents.
There are no formal entry requirements but you will be assessed on entry to ascertain your level in English. You will then be advised if your level is appropriate for this course. If it is felt that you are not quite at the level required you will be offered another English course to study. This course is designed to help students towards a level 2 qualification in adult literacy so students who already hold a Level 2 or GCSE English would not be suitable for this course.
