Language Access Fund – Support for Ukrainian Nationals

Language Access Fund – Support for Ukrainian Nationals

 

In an effort to support the millions of families that have had to take refuge as a result of the conflict in Ukraine, Trinity College London is pleased to introduce a special round of the Trinity Language Access Fund to help those who have been affected by the war. 

What is the Trinity Language Access Fund? 

The Trinity Language Access Fund has been developed to provide English language learning and examination grants for learners who experience barriers due to race inequality, settlement status, special needs, disability and more.    

Support for Ukrainian Nationals 

The funding in this round will be specifically allocated to Ukrainian nationals who are deserving of the opportunity to learn English but who may not have access to education because of their circumstances.  

Teachers and organisations working with Ukrainian refugee learners are encouraged to apply for funding to help with the costs of lessons, equipment, materials or exams. 

Now open for applications 

Those looking to submit an application in this special Ukrainian Support round can do so from Monday 4 April 2022 up until Monday 27 June 2022.

Little book of Exam stress – Help for young people

As many young people are currently preparing for exams some may experience stress and anxiety at this time. For some young people the effects of stress are minor and can be managed effectively but for others it can be a time of heightened anxiety.

This little book is designed to assist young people to recognise the signs and symptoms of exam stress and provide them with coping skills and strategies to manage it effectively. It also provides them with information to assist them to prepare for exams i.e. planning for revision, prioritising tasks and revision tips. The little book reminds young people to seek support from family and friends and know how to be kind to themselves. In addition, it includes QR codes for other relevant and useful wellbeing resources which they will find useful during exam time.

In developing this resource we consulted with young people through a focus group to ensure that it meets their wellbeing needs.

Please share this Little Book of Exam Stress Self-Care with your contacts to support pupils especially those who have exams over the coming months.

Please find below the relevant links to the Little Book, including an Irish version and a video of instructions on how to fold it:
