Advance notice: We'll be closed from the 1st August until the 6th. Reopen on the 7th August, 9 am.
Please, note that you can still use the service as usual, but there will be slight delays with marking tests and processing enrolments during the summer holiday period.
Students will be able to access their courses as usual. Any tests submitted between 1-6 August will be marked by the 9th August. If you need a course extension, contact us.
Enjoy the summer!
Our general ESOL courses include 5 tutor-marked assessments. See course descriptions for details.
The assessment practices are explained in detail (with examples) in the Assessment Guide which can be found on students' TMPs (Tutor Messaging Platform).
The minimum score required to pass any course is 60%/100%. This is minimum 60% on each assessment.
To be able to progress to the next level, ideally, students should achieve 85% or above. This score means that the student has 'established knowledge' at that level and is ready to move up.
Students can still move up to the next level course even if their scores are between 60%- 84%, however, there may still be gaps in their knowledge that need addressing.
If you have any questions, please contact your tutor.

Update: EU citizens rights after Brexit
As most of our students are EU nationals, we thought that the information below might be useful.
Disclaimer: this information is not intended to advise on immigration issues but is simply a response to an increased interest on behalf of our students. You should contact the Home Office or the relevant authorities in your area if you have any questions on the matter.
In December 2017 the UK government reached an agreement with the European Union on citizens’ rights. This agreement will protect your rights after the UK leaves the EU and enable you to continue to live your life as you do now. It also covers your family members.
You can read further details of the agreement on the page Status of EU citizens in the UK: what you need to know.
In order to secure your rights, you will need to go through a simple application process which will confirm your status in the UK for as long as you want to stay. We are going to begin that process later this year so we can get everyone through in good time but there is no rush – applications will be open for at least 2 years after the UK leaves the EU.
