Working with vocational teachers (for ESOL specialists)

Summary With the ongoing development of embedded provision in the post 16-sector, there is an increasing demand for ESOL specialists to work closely with their vocational colleagues to plan, teach and assess the development of language and literacy skills in vocational programmes.
