The one-to-one sessions enabled learners to pass the Life in the UK test, take driving tests, speak with teachers at parents’ evenings, make GP appointments, write for local magazines, perform their poetry at Arts events and much more!
14 support sessions were run to ensure Tutors had a place to share skills, learn from one another, and reflect on the way they help people to learn.
Updated guidance was issued to volunteers throughout the year, to ensure lessons were held safely and in line with Government restrictions.
95% learners reported increased confidence through speaking with their teacher.
LASSN tutors helped 31 people to successfully take up college courses, and mainstream ESOL classes.
Learners were connected with volunteering opportunities to practise their English including in a Buddhist Centre, working with the elderly, in a charity shop and alongside artists culminating in an exhibition of their work.
Phone credit expenses were offered to all teachers and learners who needed them, as were laptops.
