English in the Community (EITC)
Last updated on: 05 February 2013
- English in the Community (EITC) is an independent UK Charity which offers a wide range of free ESOL and training opportunities for immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers and qualified English language teachers.
- We are a Sussex-wide Charity providing a wide range of free ESOL and training opportunities for migrants, refugees and asylum seekers who are living in the UK and need help with their language skills. We believe the path towards social integration begins with language learning. The key word which describes what we seek to offer is empowerment. As an organisation founded by immigrant English language teachers we are in a unique position to understand the requirements of our client group. We are a teaching-led organisation; volunteer qualified teachers, teaching assistants and personal tutors make up the majority of our organisation.
We aid our students' integration into society by providing them with useful information about their local community, which includes introducing them to the work of service providers who may be of assistance to them. During their studies students take part in brief voluntary exercises which provide them with useful cultural insights and promote positive relations between the international community and local people. All our lessons are tailored, wherever possible, to suit individual needs.
We offer training and work experience to qualified teachers, providing them with the opportunity to work within a unique and challenging environment under the guidance of our experienced mentors.
We provide research and insights, helping to shape policy and provide solutions, ensuring social inclusion of non-native people.
We work in partnership with a wide range of organisations, sharing information and resources, undertaking social projects and organising campaigns.
