Resources for Managers

This page contains the ESOL CPD modules which were developed as part of the 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, and they may still be useful in current teacher-training or CPD programmes.  A number of self-access ESOL CPD modules were developed as part of the British Council ESOL Nexus project and the link to these can be found on the ‘External links’ page. 

The page also contains the Refugee and Asylum Seekers pack of materials, developed in 2003. The pack aims to support those planning ESOL provision for refugees and asylum seekers and, although some of the information is out of date, it may still be a useful resource.
