All education courses in Scotland can be matched to the Scottish Credit and Qualification (SCQF) framework. Most English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) courses are at SCQF Levels 2 - 6. The table below shows the different levels of ESOL courses according to SCQF levels.
When you go to an ESOL assessment, the assessor will give you a small test and tell you what level you are. The assessor will give you a certificate. Please bring this certificate with you to the ESOL class so that your teacher knows what level you are.
When you sign up to the Glasgow ESOL Register, you will be placed on a waiting list to receive an assessment (unless you have indicated that you were assessed recently). We will contact you by text message as soon as appointments become available. Please do not join the register more than once.
** SQA Access and Intermediate qualifications have now changed to Nationals.
