ELSH Objectives and Goals
ELSH is working to promote community awareness and a response to the needs of the young people through ongoing projects.
An ELSH goal is to provide a friendly and welcoming environment that every student will feel that they have a real opportunity to develop further learning skills. The basic role of the ELSH volunteer teacher is to provide effective instruction for students to learn and be able to demonstrate their learning. We treat all questions, views and concerns seriously and with respect. We have experience and records that our student growth and deeper learning outcomes are developed by continual teacher interaction and assessment.
Our curriculum of introduction to basic English and Functional Skills courses has been helping students develop skills that encourage more effective learning in the future. Students who are motivated and interested in learning are usually more successful. ELSH volunteers are working to help increase student motivation and engagement in learning and development.
ELSH has establish strong links with professional agencies, organisations, institutions and other volunteer groups that work locally with refugees, asylum seekers and NEETs, for referral and continuity of educational learning skills.
