Sandwell Language Network
The Sandwell Language Network is a project funded by the Government and led by a partnership of local organisations that include Sandwell Council , Sandwell Consortium, Sandwell College and other community partners. It aims to increase the availability of English language support in the borough (including English for Speakers of Other Languages – ESOL), improve the quality of provision and support language learners towards employability.
Grant funding is available for language support ranging from conversational English sessions in community settings to more formalised ESOL language provision, as well as other resources, support and training for volunteers who wish to help with English language.
We welcome enquiries from:-
- Community and not-for-profit organisations already delivering formalised English language training, or those with an interest in doing so
- Community organisations already delivering conversational English activities or those who would like to develop this in their area
- Volunteers already involved in English language provision or those with an interest in volunteering in the future
- Those active within Sandwell communities where there are challenges around English language skills
