About promoting inclusion
For millions of people around the world developing their English skills as a foreign or second language opens up exciting new social, cultural, academic and career opportunities. However, if developing English skills opens doors, the inability to do so can also close them.
Promoting inclusion is all about ensuring that those with an interest in developing their English skills and a capacity to do so are given every opportunity and encouragement to participate in a learning programme, that unnecessary barriers are removed to facilitate this.
Not only will previously excluded individuals and groups benefit from the opportunities of developing their English skills but we will all benefit in both small and enormous ways from the range of English skills these individuals and groups have to offer.
