RLNYH was established in 2001 as a spin-off from the Department of Education & Skills project and is responsible for promoting language and skills for employability, cultural awareness and social cohesion.
The organisation works very closely with local authorities and charities to develop and implement policies widening the knowledge of other cultures. It advises stakeholders and policy makers including non-native English speakers about inter- and cross-cultural skills. Some of the ‘learning groups’ explore the training needs of leisure industry operators to handle visitors from different cultures, to respect their culture and to make sure that they are supported to respect the culture of the place they are visiting. The organisation was responsible for designing and delivering the EASYLANG™ language learning packages to train operators working within the newly established Doncaster Sheffield Airport. The languages covered were Italian, French, German, Spanish, Russian, Mandarin, Japanese. The organisation has run English for Work learning groups aimed at migrant and asylum seekers, funded by ESF and national Lottery.
