Funding for ESOL provision

To All Further Education and Community based ESOL/ESL providers in Northern Ireland

The Department for the Economy has issued the ‘ESOL NI Call for funding applications 2020/21’. This funding is available under the Home Office Additional English Language Training Fund and is provided through the Northern Ireland Refugee Resettlement Scheme (NIRRS).

Please note that only proposals towards ESOL initiatives catering for learners at Pre-Entry up to Entry Level 3 will be considered on this occasion.

Please see the following Infographic for more information.

The deadline for submission of proposals is the 21st August. However, applicants are strongly encouraged to try and submit their proposal before the final date, so they can be checked and returned for amendment, if necessary.

Please contact Ligia Parizzi, the ESOL coordinator, with queries or if you need further guidance.
