Ceilidh dancing for esol students

On Monday night a group of our ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) learners, along with their tutors, took to the dance floor for a truly Scottish night. Attendees were accompanied by an accordionist, and learnt a selection of traditional Scottish ceilidh dances in order to celebrate St. Andrew’s Day (30th of November).

Three ESOL classes joined in the merriment, with a mixture of dancing, clapping, and spectating taking place. It was a fantastic night, with fun had by all!

Skills for Work Learners Celebrate Success!

Last week, Edinburgh College and East Lothian Works staff joined adult learners to celebrate their achievements, completing qualifications in Early Learning & Childcare, and in Health & Social Care. Collaborating with Edinburgh College, East Lothian Works runs the Skills for Work programme that these learners engaged with, building the skills, experience, and confidence to pursue new careers in Early Years, or Health & Social Care settings.

David Dalgleish (Skills for Work Development at East Lothian Works) was there to join in the celebration with graduates, commenting:
“It is so rewarding to see our learners grow in confidence and develop throughout their time with us, as their learning journey takes them to their next stage; whether it’s further study, work, or volunteering”.

Our introductory courses in Early Learning & Childcare, and Health & Social Care are now enrolling again, ahead of the programme restarting at the end of August. Running on term-time Monday mornings, your studies can fit in with your busy life; there’s lots of additional employability support on offer, plus help with travel costs and free crΓ¨che places also. To find out more, call 01620 827 262, or email elworks@eastlothian.gov.uk.

I’d like to extend a huge congratulations to these learners for all their effort, and for achieving their goals!
