Trinity’s ESOL Skills for Life qualifications are designed to meet the needs of learners aged 16 and over who have chosen to make a life in the UK, and for whom English is a second or additional language. Preparing for Trinity assessments helps learners to develop the English language and transferable communication skills that they need for everyday life in the UK.
Trinity offers you the convenience and security that comes with external assessment by professional examiners. This means you can trust us to take care of the testing, while you focus on teaching and helping your learners to prepare for success.
Our Skills for Life assessments are based on the National Standards for Adult Literacy and are closely aligned to the Adult ESOL Core Curriculum. Qualifications from Entry level 1 and above are regulated by Ofqual and listed on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF).
Available at five levels from Entry 1 to Level 2, each ESOL Skills for Life award is a qualification in its own right.
