Congratulations to our hardworking pre-entry learners for successfully completing the Trinity College London’s ESOL Step Awards and thanks to Trinity College London for their support via their generous Language Access Fund support scheme.
Thanks to the funding, we were able to extend two pre-entry classes for an additional 4 months and enter the learners for Trinity’s Steps Speaking exams. The groups were made up of femal learners unable to access any college provision. This was was the first academic certificate they had every received and it gave their self-confidence a tremendous boost.
The Language Access Fund is open again for new applications. It is specifically designed to support learners who are unable to access provision due to their settlement status, personal situation, disabilities or other barriers.
