Lincolnshire Community and Voluntary Service
English Language Co-ordination Project
A 12-month project running until April 2020 to promote the provision of English language learning in the Boston area.
This is one of only eight projects across England funded by Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG).
This project covers the Boston area. Of
the other seven projects, six are inner city areas and the other is a regional project in the North.
Each project is testing a new way of partnership working across providers and promoting their joint provision.
Data and findings will feed into the National Strategy for English Language provision which is under review to ensure future provision meets demands.
To develop partnership working between the various providers and create a website to improve access to learning for learners
To identify and address any unmet needs in current provision
To improve cross-referrals between providers in order to progress learner’s English language skills
To secure a sustainable future for the website
To provide evidence to MHCLG on this model of partnership working and the local needs identified for ESOL provision
It is hoped a dedicated website will be up and running shortly.
The website will be promoted through a variety of multilingual posters and fliers, which will be widely distributed for display in retail and catering outlets, factories, employment agencies, statutory services, faith groups, other service providers, public places and social media.
Demonstrations of the website will be offered to staff and volunteers of relevant agencies and services so that they can support their clients to access this.
