[Press release relating to this:]

Funding for For English Classes to be Retargeted to Aid Integration 

Public funding for English language teaching should be targeted where it will have the biggest impact on community cohesion and integration, Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills, John Denham announced today." Local communities are best placed to understand what will best promote community cohesion and integration in their area. In this consultation we are asking local authorities and other groups how they would prioritise ESOL funding to achieve these aims." 

Today's consultation seeks to take these reforms further and is seeking views on: 

*	a new national approach to funding ESOL to help prioritise funding and ensure local areas develop plans which identify the needs of vulnerable people, such as legal residents who might be expected to stay in the country for the foreseeable future, excluded women, particularly those with young children, and refugees who have established their right to remain in the UK; 
*	suggested new national priorities for ESOL while local areas take responsibility to target funding to best meet the needs of their communities; 
*	the role of the voluntary and community sector in the provision of ESOL; and 
*	what incentives should be provided to employers to encourage them to contribute to their employees' ESOL needs.
