Progress report on the first year of implementation of the New Scots refugee integration strategy.

The purpose of this strategy is to coordinate the efforts of all organisations involved in supporting refugees and people seeking asylum in Scotland in order to make Scotland a welcoming place to people seeking protection from persecution and human rights abuses. The strategy also aims to make the most of the resources that are available for this task by promoting partnership approaches, joined-up working and early intervention where possible.

On the third day we sought to identify best practice solutions and to explore some of the factors which make an effective and successful adult learning programme for migrants.

This refreshed strategy for English for Speakers of Other Languages sets out the importance and context of ESOL learning in Scotland. It draws links to a range of related policies and offers case studies of different types of provision.

The previous ESOL strategy was launched in 2007 and progress made since then is set out in some detail.

Besides the moderator and EPALE representatives there were participants from 16 countries: Belgium, Croatia, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, the Netherlands, Romania, Spain, Turkey, and the UK.
