English, Languages and Foundation Studies

English and Foundation studies courses cater to two broad groups; those who speak English and want to boost their confidence and employability, and those who come from non-English backgrounds and want to learn to understand, speak, read and write English.

There are courses designed for those who did not gain a qualification at high school, or never had the opportunity to finish year 12, or who feel they left school too long ago.

Our access courses will bring you up to speed with what’s expected in the workplace and will enable you to go onto further study or find employment.
