ESOL Skills for Life qualifications are designed to meet the needs of learners aged 16 and over who have chosen to make a life in the UK, and for whom English is a second or additional language.

To help learners make the most of their lives in the UK, exam tasks cover a range of skills needed to settle in the country and to get by on a day-to-day basis. These include:

  • functional tasks such as reading and writing authentic correspondence with banks and other institutions, as well as genuine spoken interaction with an external examiner
  • work-related tasks to help job seekers
  • academic tasks to aid progression to GCSE, Functional Skills or other academic paths.

These qualifications are based on the National Standards for Adult Literacy and are closely aligned to the Adult ESOL Core Curriculum.


Available at five levels from Entry 1 to Level 2, each ESOL Skills for Life award is a qualification in its own right.

Individual awards:

  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Speaking and Listening

Overarching certificate:

  • ESOL Skills for Life Certificate – awarded when individual certificates have been awarded at the same level.
