ESOL within the Syrian Resettlement Scheme: Events

COSLA is hosting a series of free events across Scotland to share practice around delivering ESOL to adult resettled Syrians in Scotland.  These events are funded through the UK Government’s Syrian Resettlement Scheme.  These events will:

  • enable sharing of ideas about delivery of ESOL to adult resettled Syrians;
  • explore success factors and challenges;
  • explore key themes such as sensitivity to trauma, gender segregation, working in rural areas, literacy and strategic resource allocation; and
  • identify areas where further guidance and support would be useful.

The events will provide a useful opportunity to network and share ideas.  They will also inform the development of guidance on delivering ESOL to resettled Syrians.

The events are for everyone involved in planning and delivering ESOL, including those making decisions at strategic level and those delivering ESOL directly.  There will be a chance to speak with others in a similar position to you and facing similar issues, through themed sessions and discussions.

The events will be in:

Glasgow – 3 May, 1.30 to 4.30pm – Book here

Stirling – 15 May, 1.30 to 4.30pm – Book here

Aberdeen – 23 May, 1.30 – 4.30pm – Book here

It is essential that you book your space as we expect there to be a high level of interest in these sessions.

We hope that you are able to attend, to help build our understanding of what works and what further guidance would be useful.
