Talk English

Fircroft College have secured additional funding to continue delivering the award winning Talk English Programme in Birmingham from March 2018 to March 2019. We have just released our new course timetable for January 2019, please see below!

Funded by the Ministry of Housing , Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) Talk English is a volunteer led project that offers free English, for Speakers of other Languages (ESOL) at Beginner level (Pre Entry/Entry 1) for people with little to no levels of English within the local area.

In 2017-2018, we delivered a number of courses and activities around Birmingham, with over 20 volunteers trained on our free teacher training programme to deliver ESOL and 125 learners engaged!

Some of the local community organisations we currently working with delivering this great learning opportunity are:

  2. Piers Road New Communities Association Centre
  3. Birmingham Vineyard Church
  4. Bolden Ltd
  5. Refugee Action
