Furthermore, these learners will benefit from the development of the ability to access service providers and to have the linguistic confidence to travel, work and socialise beyond their local community.

The course is delivered in 3 modes and learners must pass all 3. Learners take an award in each separate mode. (Speaking & listening, Reading and Writing)
