This not only allows us to assess their proficiency in English, which will help us to find the most suitable work placement for their language ability, but will also improve their spoken English and fluency prior to their arrival in Ireland. Skills are a pathway to employability and prosperity. With the right skills, people are equipped for good-quality jobs and can fulfil their portenital as confident, active citizens. We design all of our English programs to improve students skills.
