English UK: with 350+ members teaching quality English across the UK
English UK: promoting quality English language learning in the UK
We are happy to help journalists with questions about English UK and UK ELT. Contact our external relations manager Susan Young on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Recent features in the Guardian, BBC South East Today and BBC Radio Sussex highlight concerns that post-Brexit passport requirements are discouraging international school group bookings - with a devastating impact on English language centres and tourist destinations across the country.
We have been overwhelmed by the generous offers from English UK members keen to help Ukrainian refugees improve their English skills.
For many, the best way to do this will be through our partnership with RefuAid. RefuAid supports refugees and asylum seekers to continue their education or career with structured support and English classes, usually leading to IELTS or OET. Around a hundred English UK members have offered free courses to RefuAid clients since 2015, many of them on an ongoing basis.
This month, we spoke to RefuAid's Chief Operating Officer Kate Higgins about how the organisation is adapting its offer to meet the additional need.
