Tutor supported training

The intermediate level English course, Journey 2 English, includes a Certificate. When employees complete the final module they receive an official certificate from City & Guilds, London.  There are ten modules in Journey 2 English. Students must complete 85% of each module and pass the two final activities of each module to earn their certificate. Learners who complete the course receive a certificate and a digital credential from City & Guilds.
