CPD module: Language acquisition and learning

Summary A zip folder containing the module guide, session plans and resources for this module. These materials were developed as part of the LSC Skills for Life Quality Initiative between 2003 and 2005. They were designed for ESOL teacher trainers to use as part of the content for accredited initial teacher training programmes, particularly the Certificate for Adult ESOL Subject Specialists. While the modules no longer directly match the new ESOL teacher training qualifications, they offer excellent activities and resources to busy teacher trainers and their trainees. The ‘Language acquisition and learning’ CPD module aims to enable ESOL practitioners to develop understanding and knowledge of factors affecting second language acquisition and learning and to consider their impact on teaching bilingual learners in an ESOL context in post 16 education and training.
