Adult language training for asylum seekers and refugees has historically been offered through public services as well as a service offered by the third sector. As language is considered key to the integration of third country nationals into Cypriot society, over recent years, relevant training has been provided via projects implemented by NGOs, governmental organisations and the private sector. While many positive steps have been taken, a number of gaps and challenges remain. Language training is provided sporadically and usually on a project basis. This creates difficulties for asylum seekers and refugees in accessing the training and also for organisations to sustain the provision of relevant services.
