Following a 2018 Government consultation, the Integrated Communities Action Plan includes commitments by the Department for Education and the Home Office to invest in teaching and learning resources for learners with limited literacy skills and little experience of formal education, in ‘pre-entry’ English language provision.  

As part of a project commissioned by the Education and Training Foundation, and delivered by Learning and Work Institute and Learning Unlimited, these events aim to launch a new set of resources to support ESOL practitioners working with learners who are new to ESOL and literacy learning.  

The resources include a suite of teaching and learning materials, an effective practice guide, a screening tool and learner profiles.  The resources are intended for use in a range of ESOL settings, including for refugee learners. 

Who should attend? 

  • ESOL practitioners teaching learners at ‘pre-Entry and Entry Level 1  
  • ESOL curriculum managers and co-ordinators in FE colleges, Adult Community Learning and other ESOL settings 
  • Volunteers supporting ESOL learners in informal settings 

Why should you attend? 

  • Hear the latest updates on ESOL policy from the Department for Education and the Home Office. 
  • Learn about the findings of our research with ESOL practitioners and learners. 
  • Get access to free teaching and learning resources for use with learners new to ESOL and new to literacy. 
  • Participate in workshops on using the resourceseffective practice guidance and organising provision. 
  • Network and share ideas with other ESOL practitioners and managers.
