        ESOL classes are vital to integrate immigrants into our society, to enable them to access jobs and services. In a globalised economy, the links they have with their home countries could also be vital to Britain's future economic prosperity. Did you know, only 3.6% of new applicants for NI numbers go on to claim benefits in the following 6 months!

        These cuts hit some of the most vulnerable people in the country, and will serve to INCREASE benefit dependency rather than allow people to realise their potential and contribute to the country.

        this move is going to hit children and their language and literacy development. Children in families where English is not the first language will suffer hugely and schools will be left to cope with the families language needs without any addition to their budgets. My students feel as if their voices are being taken away.

        These cuts make a mockery of the government's so-called policy of helping people integrate, find employment and contribute to UK society.
