ESOL Destination courses are for more advanced ESOL students and consist of both English (ESOL) and vocational study, leading to nationally recognised qualifications. You will study ESOL with Hair and Beauty at Level 1.
Level: Level 1
Start Date: 06 September 2017
Adults whose first language is not English, who want to improve their English and gain basic knowledge and skills in hairdressing and beauty therapy. The course combines language learning with practical tasks in the college's salons in order to build your confidence and prepare you for further training and employment.
You will study:
You will have the opportunity to take part in various additional activities including guest speakers and trips.
Assessment is continuous throughout the course and you will build a portfolio of work leading to VTCT Level 1 in an Introduction to the Hair and Beauty Sector. You will also work towards Skills for Life English.
You will be encouraged to develop your own learning plans for the future and you will have the opportunity to get advice from careers advisers and other agencies. When you complete this course, you may wish to go on to further study leading towards Level 2 in Hairdressing or Beauty Therapy, following a successful application and interview.
You do not need to have any previous qualifications in hairdressing or beauty therapy. You should have a pass at ESOL Entry 3 or equivalent. You will be interviewed before you enrol on the course, and you will have a written assessment to establish your level of language skills.

"The teaching is really good and the teachers are so helpful. Last year I did ESOL [English for speakers of other languages] support and it really improved my English. The client sessions have been really good. The practice has helped me to remember everything."
“I was really nervous about returning to study, but now I feel so much more confident in what I’m doing. The teachers have been really fantastic, friendly, supportive and helpful. I really enjoyed the course and really love the college, so I’ve decided to come back in September to do the Level 3. I’ve had the best time at this college.”
