Free ESOL courses for Afghan refugees  

The government will provide free English language courses for Afghan refugees as part of a package of education support for families arriving from Afghanistan.

The Department for Education is making at least £12 million available to prioritise additional school places so children can be enrolled as soon as possible, and to provide school transport, specialist teachers and English language support to assist with learning. Further funding will be provided for up to 300 undergraduate and postgraduate scholarships for Afghans at UK universities.

The provision is part of a cross-government effort, dubbed ‘Operation Warm Welcome’, to ensure Afghans arriving in the UK receive the support they need to rebuild their lives, find work, pursue education and integrate into their local communities.
