Are you looking for work skills while improving you English? CSL can help.

Improve your English in an authentic working environment. Our English plus Work Placement programme combines an English language course with a work placement in a Swansea-based company. This programme is available to European Economic Area (EEA) nationals or students on a Tier 5 (Youth Mobility Scheme) or Tier 5 (Temporary Worker - Government Authorised Exchange) visa.

Course profile

Your programme starts with one of our English courses (part-time 20 lessons or full-time 28 lessons) for a minimum of two weeks. Once you have completed your time at the school, you will then be placed in one of our local partner companies, where you will complete a work placement (unpaid). Your work placement can last from one week to six months. Every Friday afternoon, a member of staff will meet with you to ensure that you are benefiting from your stay. If you are interested in Erasmus+ funding, please contact us for further information.
