ESOL / English Language support for Health and Social Care Staff across BSW

Across health and social care, we are fortunate in our attraction of staff from diverse backgrounds. In Banes, Swindon, and Wiltshire we want to provide all our staff with support and development opportunities to allow them to find satisfaction in their role, to feel skilled and confident in all aspects of communication and to underpin further career and skills advancement and development.

Confidence and attainment of qualifications in numeracy are key areas of this.

Our local Further Education colleges offer a range of qualifications to meet the need of those for whom English is not their first language which are designed to help you build your skills and confidence in English grammar, vocabulary, speaking and listening, writing, reading and in all functions of English.

There are courses for all levels and purposes including to support those who require support to register as Nurses or other healthcare professionals in this country and for those who need to achieve levels of English attainment to access further training and development offers.

The majority of these offers are usually free of charge and if not, your organisation will usually have a budget to fund and support you.
