The other qualifications are assessed by a combination of traditional written exams and coursework. You will also have a weekly group tutorial and regular individual appointments with your personal tutor.

Find out here what our students are saying about the ESOL Course at Kingston College.
My journey in the UK started when I applied to do an ESOL Horizons course here at the College. At that time I can honestly say I could barely say “hello” and “thank you” in English.
My teachers were so helpful, patient and supportive that I managed to go from Entry Level 2 up to Level 1 in just a couple of years. I remember once when I was in a GCSE Business class and I realised I was doing better than some of the students who were actually born in the UK – I felt very proud of myself and of all my hard work!
What I enjoyed the most was the fact that every single day I learned a new thing; not just English wise, but life wise, as the class is so diverse and you get to meet people from all over the world which is a fantastic experience! It is like going on a gap year to 25 different countries!!
I am a successful IT technician now working for a company that provides services to other 60 companies.
The ESOL course has played an incredibly important role in helping me achieve this position I have today. Several of these companies I work for English is a minimum requirement. Therefore, these skills I learned in the ESOL class have put me ahead of the other employees so I am one step ahead of the competition which is really promising for my career!
