Women and Equalities: English Language Skills: Employability

Mike Wood: What are the Government doing to support women in their communities who are isolated as a result of poor English language skills?

 

Anne Milton (Minister of State (Education))

I have commented on the English language courses we are running, and the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government also has a big programme. Integration is uppermost in our minds at the moment, and the first step towards integrating people and helping them to gain confidence is for them to have good English language skills.
