The news story used as a starting point   http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-25933699 further goes on to say that…

Lincolnshire has seen a large number of migrant workers settle in the county in recent years – the majority from Eastern Europe. I met Juarate Matulioniene, a leading figure in Boston’s Lithuanian community. She told me that the majority of migrants wanted to learn English, but sometimes they needed a helping hand.

Ms Matulioniene said: “Translation is very important in an emergency, when we go to hospitals and when children go to school and they don’t know a word.”  – This is where our services can be used effectively reassuring both the customer and your members of staff.

Lincolnshire County Council spends £155,000 a year on translation services.  UKIP councillors have called for the programme to be scrapped and the money re-invested in frontline services.

For schools who need resources in Lithuanian we can offer a resource library with many curriculum resources inside, Text Tutor and  Books – Maths, Pip, Resource and Exam which can be found on the online bookstore. http://shop.emasuk.com/search.wtl I searched for Lithuanian.

Resources and tools to support you to talk to new arrivals or those whose first language is not English.

In recent Ofsted reports a number of schools that use EMAS UK have achieved ‘outstanding’ judgements and our revolutionary tools and resources have been highlighted as helping pupils achieve higher results than their peers nationally. They could all show how the pupil premium raised standards and achieved outstanding value for money.

If you have a number of EAL pupils and want resources and tools that will enable you to:

  • Communicate with them in their home language
  • Have them answer in English
  • Interview parents and carers
  • Have more effective targeting of pupils
  • Reduce disaffection through engagement
  • Have language specific work already prepared
  • Send letters home in the parent’s home language
  • Answer emails with the ease of a home language speaker
  • Use the same system as used      by Doctors and nurses in hospitals

Then talk to EMAS UK about how using their tools can make a positive difference.

Created by:

  • Teachers for teacher.
  • Classroom practitioners with years of EAL experience.
  • Utilising best practice and disseminating it.

For less than £500 a primary school can have award winning cover 24/7.

Now launching the newest tool in your pocket. The Talking App similar to Siri. It can be used by any iPad or tablet and works wherever you have 3G or Wi-Fi.

NEW Clairetalk APP

I stood in hospital today at the bed of a man who had breathing difficulties and a cough, his heart rate was rising and his breathing getting shallower and he obviously couldn’t understand what we were saying to him, he looked frightened, he mouthed something that wasn’t English. I stood there and wondered what I could do next.

How many of our readers that are doctors and nurses find themselves in this position on a daily or weekly basis?

We have made this situation a thing of the past. Clairetalk is a revolutionary communications system that speaks your text (similar to Siri)  in 25 languages and even has yes and no paddles for those with poor literacy skills.

The use of the new  ‘app’ adds portability making it even easier for you as health professionals or outreach visitors to talk to your patients. With a choice of over 25 languages you can easily converse with patients reassuring and explaining to them about their health conditions. The Clairetalk app is a portable translation system that works on any tablet or your smart phone.

Just to reassure new readers of this blog in schools teachers are using it successfully with parents and their wider community so although it may be new to you, young people and their parents may already be versatile in using this technology. In councils the tools are being used with new arrivals particularly for housing matters and where parents have used it in schools are asking for its availability in their offices.

5 x Clairetalk app = £999.00  representing good value for money.

5 x Clairetalk app plus 5 x I-Pad = £4950  making you in charge of your communication, at a budgetable annual cost, 7 days a week, 24 hours per day representing a price of just £14.00 per day for 5 people or less than 3 pounds per person.

NO surprise bills –  As a manager you will know what the cost is making it completely budgetable for the foreseeable future.

Contact us at info@emasuk.com or 0845 009 49 39.

For current members who would like to add the app to their tools please contact info@emasuk and ask for your members discount.

In an emergency situation EMASUK is invaluable

Benefits of the talking tools in A and E.  As A and E’s begin to use this system the following statement is becoming a very familiar statement .

In an emergency situation the talking tools are invaluable.

The reasons being given by doctors and nurses for this include the;

  • ease of access
  • availability without extra cost at weekends and through the nights
  • availability of phrasebook for those sentences frequently used which also sped up the process of triage, general form filling in and information gathering.
  • waiting for a translator/interpreter can be too long but this is when the online tool comes into its own.

There are many challenges ahead of all healthcare providers including the new CCG’s,  if you would like us to be part of your solution contact John via email j.foxwell@emasuk.com   or  phone  07525 323219.
