New Cohort Of Refugees

New Syrian families supported in Burnley

In early August 2019 the third Burnley cohorts in the Syrian Refugee Resettlement Program had their language assessments conducted by Al Hayat here at The CVS Centre.

The assessment determined their ability before starting their regular ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) lessons on 4th September 2019.

What made this assessment session special was that instead of relying on an outside interpreter, two ESOL students, one former and one current, assisted with the interpreting.

BPRCVS are looking forward to working alongside these new cohorts and engaging with them as we have done with the previous two cohorts. We will keep you updated with their progress as they learn English. Watch this space for news and updates too about any educational and cultural trips, activities, events and more.
