Our Vision

We see Scotland as a welcoming place where non-native English speakers have the language skills and confidence to live fulfilling lives.

Our Mission

We provide accessible and relevant ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) learning opportunities for adults, supporting integration, employability and personal development.

We support ESOL practitioners and learners to have their views heard.

We welcome all non-native English speakers, including asylum seekers, refugees, economic migrants and members of settled communities.

The project also has a focus on ESOL courses blended with other skills e.g art, photography, walking groups. This is a new 3 year project funded by the National Lottery.
