College ESOL learners will put their best foot forward to support Refugee Week 2021.

The group are linking up with Warwickshire County Council’s Youth Support network to walk from Coventry to Warwick during the final day of the ‘We Cannot Walk Alone’ campaign on Friday 18th June.

‘We Cannot Walk Alone’ is the theme for Refugee Week 2021 – a UK-wide festival celebrating the contributions, creativity and resilience of people seeking sanctuary.

A programme of arts, culture, sport and education events enables people from different backgrounds to connect and helps them to understand why people are displaced and the challenges they face to seek safety.

The College has a strong ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) programme provision and caters for learners from all corners of the globe who want to learn English as a second language.

ESOL Tutor Fatima Reszczynski said: “This is a great opportunity for our ESOL youth to embrace and the group are looking forward to being involved.

“Our learners have been invited to join the County Council’s Youth Support Group for a day as they clock up the miles to celebrate refugees in the UK.

“They will walk from Coventry to Warwick to show their support for the project and stand as one with other young people in the county to recognise refugees.”
