How is the Preparation Course Structured?


  • Initial Assessment to see your current English proficiency level.
  • Induction: Information about the Course, Centre, facilities, Heath and Safety matters, test and the teacher
  • Information about the awarding body and the waiting times for results.
  • Format of the test and preparation in all four modules with constant feedback.
  • We are accredited with the Awarding Bodies Pearson and Gateway House and can hold the exam in our Centre. You do not need to travel elsewhere to take your exam.

Entry Requirements:

When you first come in and register, you will be given an Initial Assessment to see your current level of proficiency in English. After the assessment, you will be given feedback and a personal timetable for you to study with us and get to the level you need to pass. All courses are offered for adults (18+) only.

Class Structure:

Preparation classes are mostly handled in a 1-1 structure in order to provide flexibility and focus for individual needs. However, in some cases, the classes could be provided for small groups for practice and confidence building through peer support. The maximum class size is approximately 10-12 students.

Class Timing:

At the moment, Hayes College London operates on a flexible basis. This means that there are no specific term dates, rather we will work with every student to provide a timetable suited to their individual availability. This might change in the future. We are open every day of the week except Sundays. We are closed for Christmas and Boxing Day. There also will be holidays for Good Friday and Easter Monday.

The Guided Learning Hours:

The course will be at least 45 guided Learning HOURS OVER 2 to 4 WEEKS focusing on the 4 skills you need for the Exam depending on the learner's capability.


If you have a pass result for SELT B1 that you might have taken for the Citizenship application you will need to take only two modules: Reading and Writing.
