Increasing literacy and language skills
We want the people of Glasgow to experience the benefits of learning. Our wide range of classes helps improve learners' lives. They allow people to develop new skills and meet people. Not only that, but they can help to boost their confidence and job prospects.
One learner comes to mind. A father of four was keen to keep developing his English so he could support his children with their schoolwork and have a better chance at gaining employment.
English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)
Open to anyone over 16. Our classes are vital in helping people take part in their community. Whether that’s being able to speak to neighbours, make a doctor’s appointment or socialise in general. ESOL allows learners to meet new people and develop their language skills.
