PADILEIA - English speaking practice volunteering scheme

Thank you to all the volunteers who helped participating students to prepare for their future through the PADILEIA English speaking practice volunteering scheme 

This volunteering scheme was set up in collaboration with the Modern Language Centre (MLC), Global Engagement Office and Partnership for Digital Learning and Increased Access (PADILEIA). PADILEIA is an initiative funded by UK Aid, and aims to facilitate access to higher education for those displaced and affected by the Syrian crisis in Jordan and Lebanon by providing a range of study programmes and support services such as our speaking practice scheme.   

King's student and staff volunteers were trained to provide English speaking practice sessions for Syrian refugee and host community learners in Lebanon and Jordan. With your help more than 800 sessions were offered to participating students.
