Sign-posting to ESOL

This webpage provides awareness to staff or their partner/family members, whose first language is not English, who wish to develop their spoken or written English.  Note: ESOL is not provided by HR.

What does ESOL mean and what can it help with?

As stated on the Scottish Government ESOL webpage ESOL is the term for 'English for Speakers of Other Languages'. In addition to enhancing levels of English, ESOL qualifications could help with passing the Life in the UK Test or for British Citizenship applications.

Where do I go to get help to improve my English?
