Leicester tutor to work in refugee camps providing language support

A University of Leicester tutor is heading out to refugee camps in Europe in order to help with English language classes.

Aleks Palanac (pictured) from the English Language Teaching Unit (ELTU) will be visiting northern Greece for a week in order to offer some teacher training for volunteers who offer English language classes to refugees in camps in the region.

This is part of the University of Leicester ELTU’s on-going support for asylum seekers and refugees.

Aleks already leads on local English language support for asylum seekers with Leicester City of Sanctuary and helped to organise a training event for local volunteers in March.
