Upcoming Workshops

We will be running 2 styles of workshops per subject per month to introduce you to the subject and to prepare you for the tests.

Check out the Workshop itinerary to register onto the workshops. Also, if you require a Speaking and Listening assessment, contact your tutor.

Supplementary learning will be supported by our workshop and tutorial recordings plus our call back facility.

Apprenticeship Workshops

Call-back facility

We want you to be independent so that you can learn in your own time, and when it suits you.

To get to that point you may need some one to one guidance from the team.

To book on, you just need to click one of the icons below. 

Use the call back time to go over a topic you haven’t yet grasped, maybe feedback on a practice paper or help with devising a learning plan tailored to your needs.
