Course Description

ESOL Entry 3 courses are for you if you speak English as a second language and wish to improve your
speaking, listening, reading and writing skills to a level which enable you to progress to Level 1 and/or to
improve your work prospects or help you to gain a place on a vocational course in the college. The course
focuses on a different language skill each term, usually speaking and listening in term 1, reading in term 2
and writing in term 3. Each terms ends with a Trinity College Skills for Life ESOL exam at Entry 3 in the
appropriate skill. After a year, you will receive a certificate stating that you have achieved the full Entry 3
qualification. Courses have work-related and citizenship skills built into the scheme of work. You will have a
personal tutor who negotiates an individual learning plan (ILP) with you and meets you for regular tutorials to
monitor your progress. ESOL students are encouraged to develop their language skills through the use of
ICT and you have access to computers in the classrooms and the libraries to follow self-directed study as
well as doing homework.

If you speak English well but have problems with reading and writing, we have courses specially for you.
These are the ESOL Reading and Writing courses which give you intensive practice in reading and writing
skills in order to bring these to the level of your speaking skills.

If you are interested in working in childcare, there is an Entry 3 level course which enables you to study
introductio to childcare alongside improving your language skills at Entry 3. This course is held at
Wornington. Please ask if you are interested in this.

What background and qualifications do you need to join? (Entry

To join an ESOL Entry 3 class you will need to have an Entry 2 ESOL qualification. If you have not studied in
this country before, you will have a short language assessment and interview to make sure that this is the
right level for you. If you have completed Terms 1 and 2 of ESOL Entry 3,you should be able to progress to
Term 3, with the agreement of your tutor.

What does the course lead to?

If you achieve the Entry 3 qualification, you can progress to ESOL Level 1 or another vocational course in the
college - or you may be able to find work immediately.

Where will I study?

You can study ESOL Entry 3 at Wornington, Hortensia or Holland Park centres. If you study the Introduction
to Childcare with English (E3) course, you will study at Wornington. There is also an Enty 3 class at the Open
Door centre, which is community venue close to Wornington. Whichever main college centre you choose,
classrooms are equipped with interactive whiteboards and computers for your use.

learner's dictionary to class, but there is no requirement to buy a course book.

How much should I study outside class?

with English speakers or other ESOL learners outside the classroom. Lecturers set regular homework to be
completed at home.

How is the course assessed?

Every term there is a national, externally set exam which leads to the Trinity College ESOL certificate at Entry
3. There are opportunities to retake exams in term 3 if you are not successful in term 1. You will be assessed

individual learning plan (ILP).
