NATECLA was granted charitable status [^] in October 2013, allowing the organisation to claim tax relief on income and apply for grants from trusts and donors. In addition, as a registered charity, we now have more chance of gaining access to and securing funds from central government, local government, the EU and grant-making charities.
Our charity number is 1154124.
Our aims as a charity
NATECLA aims to advance all aspects of education and training in English for adult speakers of other languages for the public benefit.
To achieve these aims NATECLA will, in particular but not exclusively, provide a professional forum for:
- teachers and those organising provision of English to adult speakers of other languages (hereinafter known as ESOL) resident in the U.K.
- teachers of community languages and others concerned with multi-lingual language issues in post-16 education.
NATECLA's trustees, in collaboration with our Management Council, Branch Network and National Coordinators, manage and support our work. The trustees work for NATECLA in a voluntary capacity and include:
- Mary Osmaston (co-chair)
- Nafisah Graham-Brown (co-chair)
- Judith Kirsh (treasurer)
- Diana Tremayne (Management Council research rep)
- Irene Austin (Management Council voluntary rep)
- Jenny Roden (Management Council ESOL Strategy rep)
