Communicate with confidence

Student Testimonial

"The thought of starting something new, something which you know nothing about can be a daunting idea. It was for me. I knew nothing about English or maths, and I knew less about Red Spark.

I was anxious to walk through the doors and suspicious of a free education. But this anxiety seems a little bit silly now. Red Spark wasn't like school. The teachers turned out to be surprisingly eager and delightfully patient. And every student was treated with the same knowledgeable and warming advice.

Also, you won't get told off for not knowing all the answers, and you can leave whenever you want. Red Spark isn't a school, it's a place which welcomes and encourages all people of all ages and it could even change your life."   ~   Daniel

English Qualifications



If you don't feel confident writing a letter or try to avoid reading or just need qualifications to improve your prospects you have come to the right place.
Our Accredited English courses are free to anyone who has not already obtained a level 2 in English, and was over 19 years of age on the 31st August 2020 and lives in Herefordshire.


Coping with Covid

Currently due to the Covid 19 pandemic we are delivering all our courses online through our virtual learning platform, or VLE, Moodle. If you would like to improve your English but do not have the technology to access our Moodle site or have accessibility issues, please contact us and we will work on finding a solution with you.

Studying with RSL

Our English lessons run for three hours per lesson and are on Mondays and Thursdays, running both in the morning and in the afternoon. Our qualifications start at E1 (very basic) and go up to a L2 (GCSE standard). We assess our students to ensure they study at the appropriate level with the average for obtaining a qualification being over a 17 week period.

How it works normally:

In the pre pandemic days we would hold classes in Hereford and Leominster and students would come every week to build up their skills. When they were ready, they would sit an exam and then, if they wanted to, progress to the next level. We are looking forward to returning to classroom delivery and meeting you all, however, our primary concern is keeping all our students safe.

How it works now:

Now students log on at their appointed lesson time every week and see, listen and talk with the tutor on our learning platform. The tutor will teach you the skills you need and set you tasks on the learning platform. (You can also talk with the other students.) Your quizzes and assignments are marked and if you don't succeed the first time, you can try again.
