English Classes for Migrant Workers

Through ESF Convergence funding in Cornwall we worked on several projects from July 2008 to March 2012 providing classes for over 450 participants through the following:

Skills for Work 612 Project providing English Language classes for employed migrants within Cornwall, working with a large number of companies.

Partnership Works 605 Project provision of English classes for unemployed migrants in order for them to gain certified qualifications extending their employability.

Bienvenido Project to help unemployed migrants to gain the confidence needed to get back to work, through the provision of English language training and support.

Equator Project provision of English classes to unemployed migrants in Cornwall in order to start their journey back into the workplace.

Over this phase of Convergence funding we worked in partnership with:
