Local organisations are invited to apply for funding to deliver English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) courses for Sandwell residents.
Sandwell Language Network (SLN) is a new project funded by the Government’s ‘Controlling Migration Fund’, led by a partnership including Sandwell Consortium, Sandwell College, Sandwell Public Health and SCVO.
The project aims to increase the availability of English language support in Sandwell; boost existing provision and help language learners access employment pathways.
Funding is available for courses ranging from informal, conversational English to higher level proficiency acknowledged at international level.
All successful providers will be expected to contribute to the wider aims of the SLN project, which include recruiting and training volunteers to deliver courses. Other aims focus on supporting learners to access further educational opportunities and engage with local employment initiatives.
You can find out more by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to a member of the team on 0121 533 2668.
