English for speakers of other languages
North Somerset Community Learning team at North Somerset Council is delivering English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) courses across the region.
The courses are non-accredited and vary from pre-entry level to Level 2 with the aim to support people from different communities to integrate into their life in the UK.
In light of the Humanitarian crisis in Ukraine we are seeing an increased demand for ESOL classes, both accredited and non-accredited. We are working closely with our community groups and organisations to establish a network of ESOL based support groups for the Ukrainian refugees.
If you have previous experience in teaching ESOL or English as Foreign Language (EFL) and are keen to support the delivery of ESOL provision in North Somerset please contact Iona Gibbons, Community Learning Development Worker on email@example.com.
