Essential Skills at the Waterloo, Stockwell and Lewington Centres

There are a small number of places available on our Term 3 ESOL courses based at the Waterloo, Stockwell and Lewington Centres. We are therefore no longer accepting new students on our Term 3 courses. The next available start dates for our ESOL courses will be in September 2021. Information about assessments will be updated on this page of the website in June.

We are no longer enrolling new students on our accredited and yearlong Functional Skills English and Maths courses (including GCSE) at the Waterloo, Stockwell and Lewington Centres. The next available start dates for these courses will be in September 2021. Information about assessments will be updated on this page of the website in June. Please email essentialskillsenquiries@morleycollege.ac.uk to register your interest in joining an unaccredited English or Maths course starting in Term 3.

The next available start dates for our Digital Skills courses will be in September 2021. Information about assessments will be updated on this page of the website in June.

What do I need to bring with me to an in-person Advice and Guidance session?

Students who want to enrol on of one of our Essential Skills courses should provide the following as proof of eligibility when enrolling:

  • Valid passport/visa
  • Proof of benefits
  • Proof of low income (less than £330 p/w) – recent bank statements or three payslips from the last six months.

Please note that our Functional Skills and GCSE English and Maths courses are free as long as you have been living in the UK or the EU for the previous 3 years, therefore you will not be expected to provide proof of eligibility.
