New ESOL resource to support Polish-speaking adults

Skills for Life Network

Talking employers’ language is a NIACE promotion to help Polish-speaking adults improve their English skills for the workplace

‘Many businesses employ people whose first language is Polish. Polish workers enjoy working and living in the UK, but are often hampered by their lack of English skills. Learning English will help employees deal better with aspects of working life that can be baffling if they do not have a good grasp of the language.

With European Social Fund and DfES support, we have produced a free 8pp leaflet especially for the Sign Up Now campaign in September to highlight the benefits to employers of providing ESOL onsite, or alternatively to encouraging their employees to ring learndirect’s Polish helpline for advice and guidance. Alongside the leaflet NIACE has produced a series of postcards specifically to promote the Polish language line to employees. You can order postcards or the employers’ leaflet free of charge by sending an email to telling us how many you need, or call the NIACE Campaigns & Promotions team on 0116 2044 200.

You can also order by going straight to the online order form on the NIACE website
