Al Hayat is an established
centre delivering English for Speakers of Other Languages
(ESOL) courses in the UK and its founder has
many years of experience in serving the
community.

Mission Statement:

We aim for excellence in English Language teaching nationally, whilst encouraging and promoting community and social cohesion through language development.

The main activity of our organisation is to provide high quality ESOL classes and tuition for learners in N.E. Lancs, in a centre with professional and experienced tutors. We offer flexible courses with added value built in, and we are recognised by the UKBA and approved by the British Council. We have built strong community partnerships and aim to keep courses relevant to the learners and responsive to the needs of the community, promoting community cohesion. We are particulary responsive to vulnerable adults in deprived communities. As a direct result of Home Office requirements, we run a preparation course for the ‘Life in the UK’ test.

We are also a recognised test centre for the awarding body, ‘Ascentis” and offer preparation courses for certificates needed for British Citizenship. We prepare students for the International tests A2, B1, and B1 (IESE) offered by Trinity and in addition, for the IELTS certificate awarded by Cambridge UCLES.

We regard ICT skills to be essential to learners for life and work in the UK and so include a functional skills ICT course alongside our ESOL classes.

Most of our tutors work part-time and we welcome volunteers who can assist our learners and develop their own potential as ESOL tutors. All our classes have a maximum size of 14 (or 16??)  and the minimum age of our students is 18 years. For more information about the centre or the classes, contact Tahir Hussain, the Chief Executive Officer, or Pam Stowell, the Academic Manager.
