ESOL Celebration

Students on our English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) courses have been celebrating their success.

ESOL courses have been delivered through community and college classes in East Ayrshire, North Ayrshire and South Ayrshire.

 
For the first time, groups from all three local authority areas came together to celebrate their progress at a ceremony held at our Kilmarnock Campus.

ESOL courses help speakers whose first language is not English to learn the English language through everyday topics of family, daily routine, accommodation, social and cultural awareness.
Enterprising Students
 
We caught up with the first batch of grant recipients from the Enterprising Student Fund to find out how they plan to use the £5,000 to help their businesses.
