EMTAS (Ethnic Minority and Traveller Achievement Services) in Hampshire

I have recently had the pleasure of working with Olha, a Bi-lingual ELSA who works for EMTAS (Ethnic Minority and Traveller Achievement Services) in Hampshire.  We have worked collaboratively with 2 of our pupils from Ukraine. We had 7 weekly sessions together and we all benefited, Olha and myself included, as we were able to share resources and ideas.
Sarah Coles, Team Leader at EMTAS was so pleased with the way we collaborated that she asked if we would be interviewed for a blog to be posted on their website.
