You will not be surprised to hear that due to the coronavirus outbreak, our third regional event in Hull has been postponed until further notice.
In the meantime, while we wish all our website users well at this uncertain time, we would like to direct you to this useful link where essential information on the virus has been translated into 23 languages. The guidance has been produced by Doctors of the World and is based on the NHS’s updated advice and health information. Please share as you need to.
Launch of Migrant Information Hub
Migration Yorkshire has just launched the Migrant Info Hub which aims to offer useful information and resources to help migrants, and those supporting them, to stay safe, connected and informed, and to reduce the harmful impacts of coronavirus (Covid-19) on our region and on people’s lives. See link below.

ESOL Resources Available for Providers and Learners
We continue to work hard to support those learning ESOL in the region.
You may be interested in our new ESOL Resources List for Providers which is now available in the helpful links section at the bottom of this page. We have also added a list of Online Resources for Learners that Hannah Jameson at Leeds City Council has put together.
Welcome to Learning English in Yorkshire and the Humber – LEYH!
On this website you can find information about English language classes in your area and across the Yorkshire and Humber region.
You can find out which classes are free, where they are held, what level they are and whether childcare is available.
We hope the website will be useful to learners, providers and support staff working with migrants in many different organisations.
What people are saying about Learning English in Yorkshire & the Humber
It's a fantastic idea to have all of the ESOL opportunities brought together on one user friendly website!
Emma Taylor, Head of International Programmes, York St John University
I think it will be very useful to collate information about ESOL opportunities across local authority areas into one central resource. It can often be difficult to keep up with changes and this way, we can all keep better informed of what’s out there to the benefit of the communities we’re working with.
Fiona Himsworth, Head of Maths, English and Targeted Learning, City of York Council
What a wonderful idea to have a site that I could access for information about local accredited and non-accredited ESOL provision delivered around the region. This would definitely be an asset to my work with refugees.
Shaun Brooks Personal Advisor, Syrian Resettlement Project, Adult Learning Centre, East Riding Council
MESH have put together an invaluable resource for both students and schools with their comprehensive website. The Learning English website is central to the effective delivery of ESOL in the region.
Nick Conibear at English4All
I love the new Learning English website because the learners can have a look at all the provision near them and make the best choice for their own situation.
