I am currently working as a Teacher in the Adult Community sector in Australia. I am looking to relocate to the UK next year. The programme i currently work for is a government funded course provided free to refugee and migrant adults. I am interested to know if similar programmes exist in the UK, particularly outside of London.

thanks

Your best bet is probably to look at teaching ESOL in the Further Education sector. Take a look at www.talent.ac.uk for more info. There's also some info on this forum.

I used to teach ESOL in FE but outside of a major city it was difficult to get enough hours. I also taught a modern foreign language and I think at one stage I was working in three colleges but still very part-time! Fortunately I wasn't paying rent.

Since I've moved abroad I believe funding has changed for the worse. It already had for modern foreign languages. In terms of demand for ESOL, it's still there, particularly from the new-accession EU countries. The government would like employers to contribute; with hundreds of thousands of arrivals in a few years you can understand why, but I'm not sure there is much evidence of that happening.
