What is General Training IELTS?

General Training IELTS classes focus on social and workplace language skills, measuring your English ability in an everyday context.

General Training IELTS lessons are ideal for those who are moving to an English-speaking country to complete pre-university education, work experience, training roles or for immigration purposes. People migrating to Australia, Canada and New Zealand must sit the General Training IELTS test.
