The EMAS room is where students from all ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds can meet to develop their vocabulary, literacy and independent learning skills. Where appropriate, students have individualised programmes tailored to meet their needs. In-class support is also provided.
ESOL English skills for life
Pupils with little English can improve their English by completing an ESOL Skills for Life qualification. This reflects the skills, knowledge and understanding in English needed by non-native English speakers who are studying in the UK. They allow for progression across the levels of the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) at Entry Level, Level 1 and Level 2.
This course is primarily aimed at pupils who arrive from other countries late in KS4 with little English. It will also incorporate revision of other GCSE subjects so that pupils can achieve their full potential and understanding of subjects across the curriculum, particularly the English GCSE. There are three units to the ESOL qualification – Speaking & Listening, Writing and Reading. Students can study at different levels depending on their ability. Many learners will not be ready for assessment of all modes at the same time or level. Learners can seek final accreditation at any time over the qualification period, for both the full qualification or for individual units. This flexibility enables learners to progress at their own rate and be assessed when they are ready. No portfolio of work is required.
