Trinity’s Integrated Skills in English (ISE) qualification is a contemporary multi-skills language exam designed for people who need English language skills for study. With a strong focus on real language performance and promoting the development of transferable skills for academic study and employability, ISE assesses the communicative skills needed to succeed in the 21st century.
ISE is available at five levels from A2 to C2 on the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) and consists of two independent exam modules:
The modules can be taken together, or at different times when students are ready.*
*For Secure English Language Testing purposes (SELT), both modules must be taken on the same day.
