Before you start: pre-course assessment
Before you start a course, you need to complete a pre-course assessment. You can do this at your nearest centre
For online assessments, enter 1234 as the student number.
Please let us know when you enrol that you have already undertaken an assessment online.
You will either need to attend one of our main centres for an induction session or you can complete this online.
Please note: if you wish to join one of our online courses English must be your first language in order for you to enrol.
You will need to attend a centre to take your test but we will arrange this with you once you have enrolled. The rest of the course can be completed from any PC with internet access at any time of the day.
ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages)
There is a charge for these courses however, people in receipt of benefit or on low wages may be able to get help with course fees. If you join a course after the start date, fees will be reduced according to the number of weeks left to attend. You cannot enrol online for these courses.
