ESOL and ESOL plus

Courses to improve your English and train for a career.

About ESOL and ESOL plus

CAVC has an excellent reputation for English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL). We are the biggest provider in Wales. We help you to improve speaking, listening, reading and writing in English. This can help you in life and work in the future. Our ESOL courses are delivered at our One Canal Parade building, part of our City Centre Campus.

While most ESOL learners study part-time, you can come to college to study ESOL full-time. This helps you to improve your English each week and to gain ESOL qualifications during the year. On an ESOL+ course you can train for the career you want and improve your English through the course. Study ESOL at the right level for you – between Entry Level and Level 2 – and also gain skills, experience and a qualification in your chosen career area.

ESOL courses are available at: 

  • 6 hours a week or 
  • 16 hours a week
