Foundation Learning/ESOL



If you've got learning difficulties or special training needs these courses are designed to help you become more independent and confident, preparing you for further study or work.

Some courses are general - you can study a range of subjects based on your learning needs, and then decide which area you like the most. Other courses are more specific to subject areas.

Whatever you choose, you'll have plenty of support and learn in a supportive, friendly environment to make sure you get the best out of coming to college.
