As well as two evenings per week and every morning, ICE currently runs a Cambridge First Certificate course from 12.30 to 3.30pm Monday to Friday. Afternoon courses are cheaper than mornings and you will often find that there are fewer students in a class. It might also fit well around your morning job or you might just like to wake up late!

Why take the First Certificate?

Whatever your reasons for taking afternoon courses, if you come from outside the UK, the Cambridge First Certificate is the best way of proving to a potential employer that you speak, read, write and can understand English to a sufficient level to work in a English-speaking company. We believe it is the essential addition to your CV if you have recently arrived in the country and are looking for work.

The First Certificate is not just a test. It is a General English exam and the preparation course is the perfect choice to combine General English with a motivating, specific objective to drive you on to improve your language. Classes are exam-focused with a maximum class size of 15 students. With an experienced teacher, you will learn the grammar, the vocabulary and the exam skills to succeed in the exam. Exercises are often timed to get you used to working within exam conditions.
