Chatterbox - turning refugees into sought after tutors
Chatterbox are building one of the most creative solutions to the migration crisis that we have seen to date.
The idea is simple - employ highly skilled migrants to teach their language in their new country, giving them work, a way into the system, skills and contacts. No matter their profession before, language tutoring is a chance to connect with people in your new home, feel like you have value, contribute to society, and start your life in a new, strange place.
Meanwhile, many companies are restricted in their ability to do business overseas, due to a lack of language skills and cultural know-how. Chatterbox brings the two sides of the market place together, and have already established partnerships with corporates and learning institutions alike. Watch this space - this concept could be an incredibly important solution for the UK going forwards.
