Kingston Council opens bidding on English teacher training
Kingston Council is looking for a company to train English teachers to help female immigrants integrate into society.
It will seek volunteers to be trained as language teachers.
A 21-month contract, worth more than £100,000, for the “Empower and Inspire” scheme is due to be granted next month, paid for by the European Integration Fund.
The 825m-euro pot funds projects designed to help immigrants “acquire basic knowledge about the host society's language, history, institutions, socio-economic features, cultural life and fundamental norms and values”, according to the Home Office.
The money can only be put towards helping migrants from outside the European Union and European Economic Area, who have come to Britain within the last 10 years.
Refugees and asylum seekers are not eligible to take part.
