ENGLISH FOR SPEAKERS OF OTHER LANGUAGES

ESOL 

The ESOL course is made up of 4 components; Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing. Learners will learn to follow and participate in discussions, listen to and follow instructions and give personal opinions on topics. Learners will also learn to read and understand short texts such as notes, forms, and articles, and write to communicate information and opinions in texts such as emails, articles and forms. As well as completing the Trinity exams, learners will also develop their grammar and vocabulary, and gain confidence in producing spoken and written English. We offer ESOL courses from entry level to level 2, and we hold assessments throughout the year for learners to find out their level and enrol.

LEVEL 1 AWARD IN UNDERSTANDING COMMUNITY INTERPRETING

The Level 1 Award in Understanding Community Interpreting offers the opportunity for learners who are speakers of other languages to learn about the area of community interpreting. Learners may wish to study the subject as they have an interest in the topic, or they may wish to use the qualification as a stepping stone to becoming a community interpreter.

The qualification offers the opportunity to learn about the language skills required when working in the community – giving an awareness of how language changes depending on the situation. There is also an opportunity to look at how public and voluntary service sectors work and their interaction with the community. The role of the interpreter is also explored and discussed.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

Learners are required to have a good command of spoken and written English or be working at ESOL Level 1. Acceptance onto this course is subject to successful guidance interview & assessment test.

LEVEL 2 CERTIFICATE IN PREPARING FOR THE COMMUNITY INTERPRETING ROLE

The role of the community interpreter is becoming increasingly important, particularly in regions with many minority linguistic communities. The community interpreter acts as a bridge between these communities and the public services, enabling people to access services and situations which would otherwise not be possible.

The Level 2 Certificate in Preparing for the Community Interpreting Role will help learners to develop public service awareness and knowledge and to develop language skills in preparation for training as community interpreters. Learners will develop personal skills such as assertiveness and listening skills which will support their future study and work as community interpreters.
