Talking Together English Teaching Initiative
In 2015 Turkish Cypriot Community Association in partnership with Time Bank was able to offer and deliver English classes to beneficiaries with limited English language skills. Many of our learners were women hoping to develop their English and improve their chances of getting a better job. What was common amongst all of our learners was their wish to become more involved within the host community within a multicultural London.
The initiative delivered two sets of classes and supported a total of 27 beneficiaries. As expected, the partnership has continued into 2016 with plans to start a new class in March of 2016. We hope through the growth of this partnership to continue to help many more people become more active members within our community.
