CENTRAL TRAINING – SUPPORTING WORKPLACE COMMUNICATION
- Posted by: pembscollegesuperadmin
English lessons for speakers of other languages
Central Training at Pembrokeshire College are working with local employers to deliver free and flexible 15 week programmes of English lessons. The course is targeted at those employees who struggle with English as a second language and aims to improve workplace communication and productivity.
“Capestone Organic Poultry employs people from all over Europe, and some from other parts of the world. Many of our foreign workers have very limited spoken and written language abilities.
Through contacting Pembrokeshire College, we found out about ESOL courses from their very helpful and capable team, who facilitated our desire to help our staff improve their English abilities and have managed to arrange for three levels of English courses, which are very conveniently being held on our site.
The ESOL courses will help improve communication within the company as learners will have a more confident understanding of the English language and this will enable them to engage with the company, their community and each other more effectively. Long term, our Employee Forum will develop into a more culturally diverse group and allow individuals to integrate more confidently within the community.” Ellen Rowell, Human Resources Manager – Capestone
“ESOL English lessons have helped our staff integrate not only into the workplace but also into the local community. Learning English has improved their confidence and has enabled a number of people to gain promotions within the Company.”
Jane Sadler, HR Executive – Puffin Produce
