The strength of Westonbirt Summer School is in developing language skills for life. We have to streams for both fluent English speakers and English as an additional language.
English as an additional language
Many job specifications require a 'fluent use of spoken English' and 'confident written English'. Being able to express a point of view, interact positively and debate well are key in any language. A positive progression through any education system is based on an assured use of language. Communication skills are important to all, whether native speakers or not. Westonbirt delivers multiple opportunities to develop such skills in a positive environment where the entire community is focused on supporting each other.
Life Skills for fluent English speakers
Life Skills coaching; focusing on the Westonbirt Skills for Life programme. Here students will have opportunities to practice; interviews, debating, researching and presenting to name a few. The aim of these sessions will be to enhance the communication skills students need to be successful in the work place and in life! Students will be set a research project they present on at the end of each week. Each week will be themed based on the LIFE programme
