Reza — Eng­lish for Speak­ers of Oth­er Lan­guages (ESOL) for adults

Person smiling

Teach­ers were very friend­ly and supportive. 

Reza — ESOL for adults

Reza stud­ied as an adult. He used ESOL cours­es for adults at Not­ting­ham Col­lege to improve his Eng­lish. Then, he stud­ied more cours­es and worked his way up to Lev­el 3 and Lev­el 4 AAT Accounting. 

Now, he runs DNS Accoun­tants Not­ting­ham, his new franchise.

Reza came to the UK in 2015 from Iran, with lots of expe­ri­ence as an accountant.

But he didn’t have the UK qual­i­fi­ca­tions to work as an accoun­tant here straightaway. 

So, he has worked hard to gain the right qual­i­fi­ca­tions at Not­ting­ham College. 

Reza's view on the ESOL staff

Reza stud­ied as a mature stu­dent. He said: On my ESOL course at Not­ting­ham Col­lege, teach­ers were very friend­ly and very supportive. 

They were always con­sid­er­ate of people’s lives out­side of Col­lege. They were so help­ful in and out­side of it.” 

Reza explained how ESOL helped him progress

Reza said: The ESOL course helped me to move onto Func­tion­al Skills Maths and then onto high­er lev­el qual­i­fi­ca­tions, includ­ing part-time Account­ing qualifications.

I think every­one needs to have good Eng­lish to move to the next stage of study­ing, and that is why ESOL is so good.”
