Training Christians and churches to teach English to local communities, asylum seekers & refugees
Many refugees and asylum seekers coming to the UK have minimal support to help them to learn English.
English classes are also often the gateway for asylum seekers and refugees to get other needs met, whether medical, financial, social, emotional or spiritual.
At Christian TEFL we seek to help them learn English by training church and secular groups to reach out with free English classes so that these vulnerable communities can integrate more successfully, find and access local services and enjoy better employment and training prospects. Most importantly we want second language communities to feel cared for, connected and succeed as part of our society, enjoying positive mental health and spiritual well-being.
Founded in 2012, we are a small UK charity, based in Exeter, running training courses across the UK. What we do...
Many people have the heart to reach out to second-language speakers in their locality. but lack English teaching skills and confidence.
Christian TEFL trains and equips people to deliver English classes online and in person. We've been providing extra support during the pandemic to help churches and groups like Refugee Support Devon
find innovative ways to connect online with their local English learners. Now, as we move back into the classroom, we are looking to expand our support to groups who wish to reach out to Ukrainians, Afghans and other refugees coming to the UK. Could you help us to help the marginalised?
Your donation will help us to run Zoom-based teacher training, courses leading to full accredited teaching qualifications, and produce training guides and materials support for English language learners, so they are properly equipped to help these communities at this difficult time.
For every donation we receive, we will send you a free copy of our Teaching English in Church
(paperback), with stories of how churches are supporting refugee and asylum seekers around the country, or 20 free PDF Online English ready-to-use lessons, so you can get a flavour of what happens in the English language classroom, and perhaps try it for yourself. Thanks so much for your support!
