Rick and Sue Johns have been in the EFL business for over 30 years having started in 1988 with one student at their kitchen table in Ombersley, just north of Worcester. Today the company occupies lovely old buildings of 800sqm in the city of Worcester, providing a range of services. The DELTA course has been run here since 2015, usually starting in January and finishing in June.
The City of Worcester
We are based in the city of Worcester, 25 miles south of Birmingham, 65 miles north-west of Oxford, and 60 miles north of Bristol. Because of its central location geographically it is very easy to get to by train or car from all of these places.
We are located in Kingsway House in the main street of Worcester, called Foregate Street. It is at the northern end of the retail heart of the city centre which means it's easy to find lots of places for lunch - as well as nipping out to do a bit of shopping! Despite being in the city centre there is a garden and car park which makes life convenient.
Travelling by Train
We are just 200m from Worcester Foregate Street train station. Turn right out of the station and we are on the opposite side of the street. The main connections to Worcester are :
- Birmingham from the north
- Bristol / Cheltenham / Gloucester fom the south
- London / Oxford from the east
- Wales / Hereford from the west
When travelling by train please be aware that there are 2 stations in Worcester. "Foregate Street" is in the city centre close to Kingsway and "Shrub Hill" is slightly out of the centre - about 15 minutes' walk or 5 minutes by taxi.
Travelling by Car
If arriving by car head for the city centre. Although Kingsway House fronts on to Foregate Street, the car park is round the back in Farrier Street (post code WR1 3BH) which runs parallel. The car park is easily identlfied by three sets of black iron gates and Kingsway House signs.
