Location

Situation

Our target group is isolated and new arrivals in the UK many with small children. They are unable to attend college classes due to low level English that colleges cannot accept & lack of childcare facilities. Our intervention aims to prevent more serious mental health problems, reduce, use of social and health services and support their transition to progress to further training, volunteering and employment opportunities and increase meaningful interaction with their children & schoolwork

Solution

The project will provide trained volunteer tutors to teach English tailored to the needs of the student. The Coordinator will coordinate referrals from professionals, visit, assess & pair students. She will supervise tutors, organise tutor training & ongoing workshops, manage the waiting list conduct CRB checks, help with goal setting & progression & organise outings & refer students to in-house health courses, record progress & feedback from students & tutors
