English qualifications not only open doors to a range of new careers and course opportunities but are also essential in everyday life. Whether you are looking to study for personal or professional reasons, we offer a variety of qualifications from ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages), to entry level Functional Skills up to Level 2 Functional Skills through to GCSE.

Even better, if you don’t already have a GCSE grade 4 (formerly grade C) or above in the subject you wish to study, the course will be FREE!*

GCSE programmes start in September each year, with the option of evening or daytime classes. ESOL and Functional Skills classes start throughout the academic year with a variety of start dates and class options available.

Before you begin an English course, you must attend Preston College for an assessment. The assessment is used to determine which level of study is right for you, and to make sure that we are putting you into a class with others of a similar level and ability.
