Information and support

We can provide advice to help you find the best course to enrol on and can give you further guidance during and after your course. If needed we can help you with funding applications.

If you want to join an ESOL class (English for Speakers of Other Languages) you will need to have a one-to-one interview with an ESOL specialist who will find the right course for you.

Assisted learning

If you have a learning difficulty and/or have a disability there is extra support available to help you get the most out of your course.

Please contact us at ideastore@towerhamlets.co.uk or speak to a member of staff in an Idea Store and we will get you the information you need.
