Before you can join this course, you will need to talk to a member of staff and do an initial assessment to make sure the course is right for you. For more information and to book an appointment please call 0300 303 3464. We will use everyday situations like travel and transport, house and home, health and going shopping to learn new words and practise reading. This will help you to use and understand English you can see in application forms, letters (e.g. from a child's school, doctor, job centre, or landlord) and information in public places. This could help you to find a job, join in with local groups or activities, or feel more independent in your everyday life.
