The Nelson/Tasman region has many migrant workers coming in to work on orchards, vineyards and factories. Their smiles, culture and work ethic are a great asset to our region
Of course, English is often their second (or third or fourth) language.
We sometimes run ESOL programmes in partnership with Red Cross. The programmes support migrants to learn the basic English language skills they need for good working relations.
