Subject: NATECLA comment on cuts in provision & updates

Proposed cuts in ESOL provision and posts.
NATECLA is very concerned to hear about proposed cuts to ESOL provision and posts.  Given that the funding for ESOL for 09/10 will be at the same level as this year and that there is a continued demand for ESOL provision we can see no justification for cuts.  The government's policy on ESOL, presented in the document ' A New Approach to ESOL'  in May of this year, seeks to prioritise ESOL provision for those who are most at risk of exclusion. This will not be achieved by cutting posts and provision, particularly provision in outreach and community centres.  The refreshed Skills for Life strategy focuses on skills for employability and ESOL has a key role to play in this strategy as well.  We therefore urge colleges and other providers to do everything possible to ensure that ESOL provision is maintained and that the considerable ESOL expertise in our workforce is protected and not lost through  compulsory redundancies.

We are certainly picking up another round of cuts in programmes for next year across adult learning but are only getting details in drib and drabs. So any news you have can you send to me or Robert Whitaker at NUS who is putting the Bulletins together at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>
