ESOL for Work

  • Shorter and more work-focused than traditional ESOL qualifications

  • Supports learners to communicate better and so progress faster within the workplace

  • Learners progress at their own rate and are tested when ready

Edexcel’s ESOL for Work qualifications make it easier for employees to gain the functional English language skills they need. These qualifications offer a new solution specifically tailored to the needs of employers.

Our ESOL programme is shorter and more work-focused than traditional ESOL qualifications, giving learners practical English skills in essential workplace matters such as health and safety and customer service. As well as improving employees’ accuracy, efficiency and effectiveness, the new qualifications will help employers benefit from improved communication and productivity.

ESOL for Work is available at Entry 3 and at Level 1.

View practice tests and related documents, including guidance and mark schemes.

New ESOL speaking and listening standardisation material is also available for you to use. The Skills for Life team has put together a small sample of recordings using Edexcel's practice tests, sets 1 and 2. Each recording can be played while you consider the assessed paper, its mark scheme and the Lead Verifier's commentary.
