Free ESOL courses for Londoners

ESOL
Skills for Life Network

The Greater London Authority is planning to provide free English for speakers of other languages (ESOL) courses up to the level required for British citizenship.

As part of a new consultation on its Skills for Londoners Framework, which was launched on the 16th of April, the GLA outlines how it intends to spend its adult education budget (AEB) from 2020/21, including a proposal to fully-fund ESOL provision up to entry level 3 from that year.

The GLA is due to take control of London’s £306 million adult education budget from the Education and Skills Funding Agency on August 1st, 2019. A review of the quality and delivery of ESOL provision in the capital will be carried out before the free courses are offered.
