Improving Language, Improving Lives: ESOL delivery in the secure estate
This free event will launch a set of new resources for ESOL tutors working in prisons or in the community with learners who have had recent experience of the Criminal Justice System.
Delegates will also benefit from an introduction to a new ESOL screening tool for use in prisons and community rehabilitation settings, a policy update from the Ministry of Justice, and the opportunity to network and share practice.
This event is being run as part of Improving Language, Improving Lives, a three-year project which aims to enhance ESOL screening and provision delivery in the secure estate. Funded by the Bell Foundation and delivered by Learning and Work Institute in partnership with De Montfort University, the project is working with prisons and community organisations to enhance ESOL screening and delivery for learners who have experience of the Criminal Justice System.
Delegates will benefit from:
- Access to a set of free resources for use with ESOL learners in prison and community rehabilitation settings.
- Workshops to familiarise delegates with these resources and how they can be used with learners.
- Hearing the latest updates on policy changes in the secure estate.
- An introduction to the ESOL screening tool and how it can be used to improve identification of English language learning needs amongst prisoners, learners and clients.
- Opportunities to network and share ideas and practice with other ESOL practitioners and managers working in the secure estate.
This free event is for policy makers, ESOL practitioners, education managers and heads of learning and skills who work in a prison or in the community with learners who have had recent experience of the Criminal Justice System.
