Destination Health & Social Care/Childcare (with ESOL)

ESOL Destination courses are for more advanced ESOL students and consist of both English (ESOL) and vocational study, leading to nationally recognised qualifications.  You will study ESOL with a range of Level 1 vocational courses in the health & social care/childcare sector.

You will be interviewed before you enrol on the course, and you will have a written assessment to establish your level of language skills.
