Skills for Life

Exeter College runs a “Skills for Life” ESOL course at 5 levels, focussing on communication skills. This course offers qualifications.

The course takes place at Hele Road, Bradninch Court and various Community venues.

After initial assessment and enrolment, learners begin by joining smaller introductory classes to improve their English. After this, they are then placed in larger mainstream language classes to suit their ability.

Learners will get the chance to gain national qualifications by taking exams at specific times as follows:

  • Speaking and Listening: exam at the end of November
  • Reading skills: exam at the end of March
  • Writing skills: exam at the end of June
