ESOL Skills for Life – RQF briefing events

Trinity ESOL Skills for Life (QCF) qualifications are changing. The Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) has been replaced by the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF).

Our RQF Briefings in September will help you become familiar with the changes. Operational and academic updates about the refreshed exams will be provided and you will have the opportunity to meet with key members of our UK ESOL team.

Please note: these briefings are available for current ESOL Centres only.

Choose from these venues and dates:

  • Birmingham: Wednesday 20 September, 1.30pm – 4.30pm at Brasshouse
  • Leeds: Friday 22 September, 1.30pm – 4.30pm at The Studio

Webinars for teachers

We hold webinars for teachers on the revised ESOL Skills for Life qualifications throughout the year – advance details appear on this page. In the meantime, if you are a current Trinity centre please do contact us with any academic queries or concerns.

We are also inviting those interested in registering as centres to arrange a meeting to discuss the benefits of offering Trinity qualifications to learners.

Please contact Janet Golding.
