    Brick wall esol 5 day coarse

    I wonder if any of you out there,have used Intelligent Training Academy(ITA). To gain the qualification for ILR.I have looked at the links on this thread and can't find them on the list.They are apparently part of The English Speaking Board(ESB)
    Trying to find out weather they would be ok to use?.We have been trying to get my wife ready to take the esol test through a coarse at our local college wich would then have her tested by an accredited examiner.This is not possible under the new legislation and we now have to apply for our third FLR.
    ITA seem to be the only provider in Scotland i can find that can do a short 5 day coarse. this is the only option available to us due to our remote location.
    Any help or advice greatfully recieved as ever!

    Alan and Uraiwan!

    Have you spoken to them?

    I would and ask them to confirm that they are able to provide a course suitable for the new requirements, and ask them to send you proof of such.
    If they say no then I would not bother with them as it could be an expensive lesson.

    The UKBA have issued a letter template for use in immigration/naturalisation applications, you will find it here

    At Long Last the UKBA have got their act together and produced something that they should have done when they first introduced the requirement! Letter Templates are obviously a bit tricky for them to do, they have obviuolsy got far too used to "We will look into that matter in due course,Yours Sincerely...) .

    Under the current rules, no.

    How long have you lived in the UK?

    In that case kapook, you could likely apply for Naturalisation as British on 2nd November 2011 - perhaps sooner if you marry another Brit in the meantime!

    Hi Chris
    Did things work out for you and your wife.
    My wife has done a year at the right type of college progressing from pre-something to level 1 as did yours.

    Did the immigration people accept this as enough. I read things now about ESOL level 3, Any ideas.

    Regards
    Dotty

    Hi Tobias

    We are hoping for ILR after reading replies to my other posts. Is the ESOL thing good for that. My wife is also taking the LIUKT next weeks as belt and braces, I'm thinking of contingencies if she fails.
    Sorry if I'm asking over obvious questions. With 2 kids in tow we are looking at 1400+ GPB so I get very nervous and worry about details.
    Thanks
    Dotty

    Dotty, as long as your wife has progressed from one level to the next (as you have said) and the ESOL course contained the required citizenship content (ESOL alone is not enough) then you have done enough. You have already stated the college is the right "type" so no worries there.
    This will be sufficient for you to obtain ILR/Citizenship when you have met the time required.

    It sounds like taking the Life in the UK test is not necessary as you have already done what is required, but there is no harm in doing so.

    That link isn't working. I have looked on the site but cannot find the letter template. Does anyone have a copy of it or can they point me to a link for it.

    My wife passed her course in Level 2 ESOL. She has had confirmation from the college. We are going to collect her certificate and while there want to ask them to send the letter required and give them a copy of the template. They may already know it but I would like to be sure.


    I am assuming that nothing has changed for ILR requirements this year since she took the course. We will be applying around January 2012
    Thanks

    After further digging around found this:

    I did see you template but wasn't sure if it was still upto date when I read it and when the link didn't work on Tobias post I thought things may have changed.

    As per my edit I found PDF on UKBA site that is the help file for filling in the M form that mentions what needs to be written.

    You've jumped through all the prerequisite hoops save for the Naturalisation application itself ...
