Situation

Education providers across the UK are cutting services to young people who have little or no English. Therefore, young people who are seeking asylum, have been trafficked or are at risk of trafficking have little opportunities and access to learn English and invest into their futures. The Baca Charity knows that in the coming year services in Leicestershire are being dramatically cut and we need to act in order to keep providing young people with the chance to communicate and have a voice.

Solution

We will employ a Co-ordinator who is a trained and experienced educator in English for Speakers of Other Languages to work alongside the young people that we support and accommodate across Leicestershire. They will support young people (3 hours Mon- Fri) to learn English, access mainstream courses and advocate for their education with providers by actively developing young people's dreams, strengths, skills and aspirations. They will work and travel across Leicestershire to fulfil this remit
