About this course

The ESOL element of the courses focuses on the language skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking. Grammar and specialist vocabulary are also a very important part of this course and students will be able to develop these areas which will support them with the health and social care element of the course.

This course is available at: 

  • 16 hours a week

What you will study

The course is 16 hours per week as follows:

  • 3.5 hours of care

  • 3 hours of numeracy

The units covered in Childcare and Health and Social Care element of the course are:

  • Human Development - Birth to Older Adult
  • Working with Babies
  • Young Children and their Families to Encourage Language and Literacy Development

The Childcare component of the course focuses on an introduction to creative activities for children’s development and the Health and Social Care element will help to prepare you for work in a health care environment.  These modules of the course are delivered by subject specialists who have first-hand experience of working within a Health and Social Care or Childcare profession.  This course prepares learners for the level 2 ESOL Health and Social Care/Childcare course.

What our students say

I came over from Romania two and half years ago. I began at the college studying ESOL, and have now progressed onto studying an Access Course in BTEC Applied Science. My ESOL course was a really helpful course, and everyone was friendly.
