ESOL availability mapping in the region: tenders invited

The South East Strategic Partnership for Migration (SESPM) is seeking to commission a piece of work to map existing English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) provision in the South East region and provide a resource to local authorities in the provision of ESOL for resettled refugees under qualifying programmes. In particular, the aim is to increase the region’s effectiveness in providing increased access to language support for resettled Syrian refugees.

The commissioning document is attached and can be found here: SESPM-ESOL-Commission.pdf. The intention is for the body of this work to have taken place before April 2017, so the timescales are short. Tenders should be submitted via email to Roy Millard roymillard@secouncils.gov.uk by midday Monday 23 January 2017.
