ESOL accessibility refers to the availability and ease of access to language programmes and services for non-native English speakers. Join us as we delve into ways to support and navigate the challenges of limited resources to empower language learners to become active and engaged members of their community.
The benefits of accessible ESOL provision are undisputed: improved communication, increased confidence, enhanced employability, economic empowerment, social integration, access to education and services to name but a few. Regrettably, many potential learners are unable to access suitable language support due to a number of barriers including immigration status, personal circumstances and lack of local provision.
In this webinar, the presenter will share real-life case studies, the experiences of our learners and, above, all, the strategies we have used to build networks within our local community to be able to provide welcoming, accessible, and effective ESOL provision.
