English Levels: A2 - B2 CEFR Pathway Table
There are a number of English courses available at Camp Worksop and are best suited to teenagers who have studied English for at approximately two years and want to speak as much English as possible.
Following an initial placement test, our English teachers will place all learners into classes dependent on their test results, this camp offers Elementary (A2), Intermediate (B1) and Advanced (B2) courses in English.
As a teenage summer camp, Worksop provides engaging English courses with interesting topics and focal points to keep the course vibrant and different to traditional school lessons. We understand that improving language skills comes from engaging students with interesting debates and teaching methods.
At the end of the 2-week course, learners will complete an examination for the level they have been learning at. We will then receive a certificate from Anglia Examinations, which confirms your English level in accordance with the Common European Framework of Reference (link). Classroom learning time per week is 20 hours and our class sizes are small with a maximum of 16 students per teacher.
For students achieving a pass grade or higher for B1 and B2, they will receive an Ofqual approved certificate through Anglia Examinations partnership with AIM Awards.

Care and Supervision
Our Camp Leaders are responsible for the pastoral care of all those in our care and ensure that everyone is sleeping well, eating well, joining in, making friends and having a great time. During free time, our teenagers are able to explore the campus with friends, whilst being supervised by their house parents. Being located in a town, we offer campers the ability to go off-site as an alternative to an activity session; however a member of Xplore staff will always accompany them.
Our camps are available to children from all over the world. Integration and immersion is central to how we operate as an organisation, and by encouraging lots of social interaction between different cultures and creating a diverse international community at camp, it can really develop every child’s self-confidence in communicating with others
