ESOL – English for Speakers of Other Languages
We can only accept learners aged 19 on 31 August 2019 and over only on our ESOL courses.
Who are these classes for?
Our ESOL classes are designed for those whose first language is not English. We have classes from complete beginner to advanced and you can attend in the morning, afternoon, evening or Saturdays; perfect if you’re working or have children at school. Most of our courses offer nationally recognised qualifications in speaking, listening, reading and writing to help you with work or living in the UK. All our courses look at topics related to living and working in Britain.
Where and when are the classes?
We have classes at our sites in Crowndale Road, Camden Town, NW1 1TR and Leighton Place, Kentish Town, NW5 2QL.
We have classes in the morning, afternoon, evening or Saturdays. Classes start three times a year, but many learners choose to learn for the whole year.
How do I enrol?
You will need to come to college to attend an assessment session before you can start a course. Please allow up to 2.5 hours for your assessment. Bring your passport or European Identity card and arrange childcare for your children. If you are on benefits please bring a recent bank statement or letter confirming your benefit. This has to be dated within the last 3 months from the start date of your course.
How much are the classes?
Fees are rising everywhere but WMC has worked hard to keep its fees low to help you.
Fees on most ESOL courses are FREE to learners on Job Seekers Allowance (JSA) or Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) or on other income based benefits and seeking work or need skills for work. If you are on benefits please bring a recent bank statement or letter confirming your benefit (dated within the last 3 months from the start date of your course) as well as ID such as your passport or European ID card.
All other learners pay maximum course fees of £225 for evening and Saturday courses or £338 for daytime classes, including exam fees.
Fees also apply for ESOL Classes in the Community and depend on course hours. Please check with the college for further information.
Learning in the Community
At WMC–The Camden College we are very proud of our links and partnerships in the community. We work with a range of partners such as schools, community centres and libraries all over Camden.
We offer a range of classes in the Community including employability (for example an introductory course to working in administration), ICT, contextualised ESOL (for example ESOL for Childcare), creative and fun workshops and short courses to introduce you to adult learning. Most of these courses are free if you are unemployed or on a low income.
