Graded Examinations in Spoken English (GESE)
Trinity’s Graded Examinations in Spoken English (GESE) are one-to-one, face-to-face assessments of speaking and listening skills with a Trinity examiner.
Preparation for these exams and achievement of GESE qualifications supports people wishing to develop their proficiency in English language speaking - for personal goals, study, travel, employment, settlement or for visa application purposes.
GESE exams are available at 12 levels, from Grade 1 to Grade 12 (pre-A1 to C2 CEFR* proficiency levels). Grouped by development stage, GESE grade qualifications offer a progressive framework for the development of English language skills.

Integrated Skills in English (ISE)
Trinity's Integrated Skills in English (ISE) is a contemporary four skills qualification intended for young people and adults - typically at school, college or university. It is also suitable for teachers and other adults who require a respected English language qualification.
ISE assesses students’ ability to interact in English in an authentic and meaningful way through the use of integrated reading and writing tasks and integrated speaking and listening tasks. Preparing for ISE builds real-life English skills and transferable skills required for academic study and employability.
