Searching for English language training providers and courses:
On this same page, beside the information about the Further Education Colleges, you will find the searching box and different options.
We recommend you start your search by selecting a ‘City/Town’ and scrolling down the options available. Select the location closer to where you live.
To achieve the wider range of results possible per location, you should then click directly onto the blue button called ‘Search Providers’.
DO NOT TRY 'Searching Courses' as some providers listed here don't update their course details regularly and results may not appear.
If you wish to translate the website into another language, you will find this feature below the ESOL NI logo and just above the searching fields, on the right-hand side of the screen.
