This Way for English


This Way for English (TW4E) is a programme that aims to engage with refugees, asylum seekers and migrants to assess English language ESOL needs as well as identify more holistic needs. The programme will refer or signpost participants to appropriate ESOL provision and refer participants to other relevant organisations or programs to facilitate their integration into the local community.  We have two This Way for English Outreach Workers – Saira Hamid and Anita McCarthy.
