ESOL Courses Now Free

Windsor Forest Colleges Group has decided to waive the fees on their English for Speakers of Other Languages courses (ESOL) to help those financially hit by the pandemic to continue learning. The courses, which are delivered at all three of the group’s colleges - Langley, Strode’s and Windsor, will now be completely free* for the remainder of the academic year 2020/21. 

The CEO and Group Principal Kate Webb said, “We know under this current lockdown even more people are being furloughed, or are at risk of redundancy and are worried about committing money to pay for these vital courses. We have therefore taken the decision to waive the fees for the remainder of this academic year to ensure everyone can access the ESOL programmes without any financial barriers.”

The ESOL courses are aimed at people who have been resident in the UK for at least three years and who need to improve their English reading, writing, speaking and listening skills.  The part-time courses for adults, play a critical role in helping people improve their work and life opportunities by developing their day-to-day English language skills.

The courses are currently being taught online during the lockdown, so learners can join classes from the safety and comfort of their own home at no cost. The highly experienced ESOL team are providing support in how to get online for first timers and the college group is also providing additional support for those who can’t access devices or the internet. 

People who are interested in taking advantage of this offer can enrol online and the College’s admissions team will make contact to complete the enrolment and provide information about how to join the courses.

*please note exam fees may be payable and the fees are waived for those who meet the residential eligibility criteria.
