What do I need to do this course?

You will need to bring a folder with dividers, along with lined paper, pens and highlighter pens. You should also bring a dictionary ( this can be on your phone). However, as you cannot use a dictionary in your final exam, you should only use the dictionary as directed by your tutor as, for the most part, you will be using skills to decode unknown words – a key skill in reading.

Requirements

  • You should already possess E3 Functional Skills or E3 ESOL Writing qualification. PET (Preliminary English Test) or IELTs 4.5 will also be recognised as an appropriate entry qualification. Otherwise you will need to demonstrate your level at an initial assessment session before you begin this course.

Teaching Methods

  • The methods will be learner-centred, often task-based and often working in groups. You will write about a range of issues relevant to your needs, to help you live in the community. There will be elements of peer-learning and an expectation for high levels of independent learning, using links on Moodle and other e-sources.


    How is your progress checked?

    There is on-going assessment. All assessments will be indicated on Moodle, which you will have access to before the course begins and for a month after your course finishes. Some assessments will happen in class time; these will be indicated on your topic list which will also be above week 1 on Moodle. You will get a lot of feedback on your reading, writing and speaking and listening skills to help you improve quickly. We will use your Initial Assessment before the class, and Diagnostic Assessment evidence collected in the first 2 weeks to plan your learning journey and negotiate individual targets.

    Extra study or practice required at home.

    There is an expectation that learners will engage in approximately 40 hours of independent study (4 hours per week) to successfully complete the course. We expect that if you miss a class, you will catch up by looking at what work was covered on Moodle. We expect you to look at Moodle many times during the week, reading and contributing to forums as well as watching videos and engaging with other extension games and activities, which will be on Moodle, to support your all round skills development.


    What can I do after this course?

    • Log onto Moodle and practise the games and other activities before week 1.
    • Also, print off the example Edexcel Speaking & Listening test to familiarise yourself with the end exam.
    • Think about any individual targets you might have – are there specific areas of weakness you wish to address?
    • Start thinking about how you will organise your class folder and which sections you will have, for example:
    1. Exam practice.
    2. Homework.
    3. Assessments.
    4. Materials from class.
    5. New vocabulary.
