CASE STUDY: MAXIMPACT & SLC’S Online Language Training Helps Syrian Refugees Build New Lives in the UK

Maximpact and SLC work in partnership to provide bespoke English training and route to employment to support multiple groups of Syrian refugees in Northern Ireland. The project uses SLC’s online training to reach refugees who cannot get to local colleges because of transport issues, childcare commitments or poor health. Courses start from absolute beginner level.

Read about how the project was set up, how it evolved, the challenges that had to be overcome and what it looks like now.


We support refugee healthcare professionals by giving free access to our online medical English courses and by teaching them to pass the English language tests required to work in the UK.

We support refugees with little or no English by teaching them the language they need to find work and integrate into their communities.

Tuition takes place in SLC’s online classrooms, so enabling our expert teachers to work with students around the country, many of whom cannot get to traditional classrooms because of childcare commitments or inadequate public transport, for example.
