English UK: with 400+ members teaching quality English across the UK
English UK: promoting quality English language learning in the UK
The plight of UK ELT in the pandemic has been outlined in a ground-breaking article in the Financial Times.
Together with the Tourism Alliance, we are calling on the Government to recognise the devastating loss of revenue experienced by UK ELT since the outbreak of the pandemic by providing tailored and ongoing financial support to help businesses survive this crisis.
We are asking the Chancellor to make ELT centres eligible for Business Rates Relief and associated grants, and also to extend furlough for our sector in the coming Budget. We have sent a submission to the Treasury, and are writing to Conservative MPs asking for their support.
It would help if members who live in Conservative constituencies or whose schools have a Conservative MP could also write to them in support of this campaign. MPs pay much more attention to constituents than external groups. As always, we've provided a template letter below and your MP's contact details here.
The Partnered Remote Language Improvement project (PRELIM) is a unique initiative, supporting the development of over 2,000 English language teachers across the world.
Calling all member centres. Help us help you and complete our Covid-19 impact survey by Friday 12 February 2021. The results will help us to continue to lobby government for support and assistance for the sector through the crisis and into recovery.
