NATECLA London have recently been made aware of changes that the Conservative-Lib Dem government plan to put into place regarding the amount of funding that will be available for providers running ESOL courses.
In short, the changes mean that the funding awarded for teaching learners on an ESOL qualification could be a quarter of what it was previously.
A number of things have happened recently to try and combat this:
- Sign this ePetition http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/45432 and share it with your teaching colleagues and interested friends (there are easy ways to do this via social media from the linked petition)
- Recommend the cuts to ESOL funding as a topic for The Guardian newspaper’s Comment Is Free section at this link: http://discussion.guardian.co.uk/comment-permalink/21073209
Please take action!
