The English Works Certificate of Recognition is a cornerstone of the English Works Campaign, serving to raise the visibility of the need for English language classes and the critical role that businesses, unions, advocates, students, and others play in developing the Commonwealth’s workforce. The certificates recognize businesses and joint labor-management partnerships that support a sustainable, high-quality English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) system in Massachusetts.
