ESOL, English, Maths and IELTS
The School of English works with learners to improve their reading, listening, writing and speaking in English.
No matter where you see yourself in the future, you need to have good English and maths skills to find a job and move up the career ladder. If English isn’t your first language or if you left school without the qualifications you need, our courses will help you to improve and gain these vital skills.

I started at the College as an ESOL student. My main interest at that time was Photoshop and one of my ESOL teachers encouraged me to apply for a digital media course.
As time went by and my family started growing up, I decided to try and get a better job, so I came to Lewisham Southwark College. I saw that the college offered vocational courses, which meant I could improve my English and train for a job at the same time.
I decided to take this course because it would help my confidence, to learn new skills and make new friends.
I had teaching experience and was confident in my professional abilities but felt I needed to improve my language skills, and my understanding of the English education system to be ‘work-ready’ in the UK, so I decided to start again from the bottom of the ladder.
