Pre-entry Language@Work

Developing key language in a given work area (catering, cleaning or retail) will be embedded throughout the course and students will be encouraged to take part in discussions and prepare a short presentation to develop confidence. Students will be given the oppourtunity to reflect on their own skills and personal qualities and link this to different job roles.

Course aim

This course will develop key skills to improve employment prospects (paid or voluntary) with a focus on developing language skills and building confidence.

What else do I need to know?
