The Masbro Centre specialises in adult learning, in an informal, non-competitive environment, where everyone can achieve his or her best. The class sizes are small with experienced and friendly tutors who are always willing to help.
COURSES ON OFFER AT MASBRO
Some courses are free of charge or a nominal enrolment fee. Enrolment for the classes is at the beginning of term and terms coincide with primary school dates.
Courses we currently offer are :-
• English Functional Skills Entry Levels 1-3, and Levels 1-2
• Information Technology Entry Levels 1-3, and Levels 1-2
• English as a Second Language [ESOL]
English courses contain modules in Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening. All our courses are certificated by Edexcel/Pearson and our teaching staff are fully trained. We can also offer one to one support to students who may need higher levels of support or have special needs via our team of volunteers.
In partnership with the Reader Organisation we also run a Reader Group where students listen to and read poems and stories, a wonderful way to make friends as well as enjoy literature. Come along to one of our drop in sessions on Thursdays 10.30 to 12.00pm.
For details of coming courses please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the main reception on 020 7605 0800. Crèche places for under 5s may be available on some courses.
It is important to book a crèche place before your session starts. We will be running settling-in sessions the week before courses begin to help your child make a good start in the crèche.

ADULT LEARNING SUCCESS STORIES
Thoyeba joined the employment programme at the Masbro Centre in January 2014. She held undergraduate degree in business administration from overseas and wanted to progress her education further, however she needed to improve her English first.
Thoyba joined ESOL and English courses at the Masbro, and quickly progressed her way up to the highest level, achieving level 2 pass in July 2015. While studying for her final English exams she applied for a place at university to study on a Business Top Up course and was accepted, starting the course in late September 2015!
Thoyeba was extremely happy that she finally was able to reach for her dream career in business, open further employment opportunities and become a positive role model for her young son. Once she completes 1 year of Business top up course Thoyeba is planning to continue her education and study for a Master’s Degree in Business.
It was hard work especially because I have a little son to look after, but I kept my goal in mind and that helped me to stay focused, improve my English and secure a place at university. I am very excited and can’t wait to start my business course!

"I needed level 2 qualification in Maths and English to study childcare. I was so happy to find out that Masbro run these courses in ‘school friendly’ times so I could study while my older children were at school.
While I was attending classes at Masbro, my little son was in the creche there, and loved it. That meant that I didn’t need to stress about him, as I knew he enjoyed his time."
Adult Learning Student
“When I started classes at Masbro I hardly spoke any English, and now after 2 years of going to classes and the Readers Group I’m about to finish level 2 in English!
I’m now confident about writing and speaking, I can help my children with homework and I’m thinking of taking further qualifications. I’ve made great friends and learned about different cultures – I feel part of the diverse local community.”
Adult Learning Student
“I was nervous about studying again but the tutor was very friendly and supportive, and I quickly made friends with fellow students. I’ve improved my English and got a qualification in Maths.
I now feel much more confident about my literacy and numeracy skills and can now to help my children with homework. I also completed a money mentoring course which helped me to manage my finance and save up money.”
