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.

“I love the course! The lecturers are very kind and supportive. In one year I’ve improved my ICT skills and my English skills and I now feel confident about progressing to the Level 2 ICT course in September. My goal is to continue on to Level 3 and eventually work in an IT company.”
"The college is perfect. It's a very friendly place. I've really enjoyed working as a student ambassador. I've been able to learn new things and meet new people and improve my English."
“The teachers are really good and the lessons are interesting. We do lots of games, activities and trips so we can practice what we’re learning. I’m finishing the ESOL [English for speakers of other languages] course this summer, but I’ll be coming back to do art and design in September. I really like the college and I’ve made lots of friends.”
