DCLG are looking for projects that, when fully developed, can deliver the high-level outcomes they are looking to achieve, namely:

Deliver a programme that will provide English language training and support participants’ integration into their local communities

Reach those groups in England with the lowest levels of English language skill

Work in those areas of England with a high need for this type of English language support

Design a project which can be sustained past the point of Government funding

Design a project with the capacity to be scaled up to reach large numbers of learners.
