Londonderry good relations officer Anglea Askin is encouraging migrant workers to avail of new English language and ‘Local Awareness classes’ funded by Derry City and Strabane District Council and beginning in September 2016.
Mrs Askin explained that participants must live in the Londonderry and Strabane area and be available to attend the classes on Tuesday evenings at 6pm-8pm from September to November 2016.
The classes are being delivered by the North West Academy of English at Cultúrlann, 37 Great James Street, Derry, and cost £10 for 10 classes.
Encouraging potential applicants who may benefit from the classes to book their places as soon as possible as spaces are limited, Ms Askin pointed out that the course induction will include an English level placement test, with lessons provided for all levels.
A Local Awareness cultural event will also be delivered by the Academy on behalf of Council.
All participants will receive an official qualification upon completion of the English and cultural awareness courses.
All students who complete the course will be awarded with a certificate from a British Council accredited language school.
