Commissioned by the Mayor of London in the context of supporting the Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme, Learning and Work Institute mapped ESOL Provision in London.

The process involved surveying more than 70 ESOL providers and engagement with 25 key stakeholders to make recommendations to support the future development of ESOL in the capital.

The findings also informed the development of the Government’s Integrated Communities strategy and action plan.

In addition, Learning and Work Institute acts as the ESOL Regional Coordinator for the South East Strategic Partnership for Migration (SESPM). SESPM coordinates and supports the region’s delivery of the Vulnerable Persons’ Resettlement Scheme. The main objectives of this work are to increase collaboration between ESOL providers and resettlement agencies across the South East and to ensure effective coordination of ESOL provision, focusing on the integration of refugees.
