Training Resources

These training resources are designed to provide teacher educators with a comprehensive and highly flexible set of resources for supporting ESOL practitioners working with New to ESOL learners across a very broad range of contexts.

There are 10 content sections, plus a separate introductory and plenary set of three slides that can be used at the beginning and end of any delivered training event.

Each section contains between 1 and 2.5 hours of teaching/ activities, providing nearly 20 hours of potential content in total. Timings are indicative and will differ from group to group. Sections do not have to be used in their entirety - it is possible to select particular elements of content or individual activities and combine them in ways appropriate to particular groups of practitioners.
