ESOL offender learning conference


The British Council and The Bell Foundation warmly invite you to a half-day continuing professional development conference in Birmingham for ESOL tutors, teachers and practitioners working in prison settings, as well as those involved in managing or leading provision of offender education across the UK.


The conference is part of the English Nexus Offender Learning project, which has the aim of connecting ESOL professionals through opportunities for developing practice and knowledge-sharing.


This conference will provide teachers, managers and professionals with an opportunity to:

  • improve practice, through practical, hands-on workshops on topics relevant to the prison classroom.
  • find out about the latest developments and research in the UK prison education sector.
  • inform discussion topics and engage in current debate with a panel of experts on the challenges of teaching ESOL in prisons.
  • network with fellow professionals, create connections and share best practice.


The English Nexus Offender Learning project is a partnership between the British Council and The Bell Foundation, and is co-funded by the European Integration Fund, to provide support to ESOL teachers and learners in prison contexts, through new resources for learners and continuing professional development for educators.


We are pleased to confirm that places at the conference are free-of-charge. As places are limited, we do recommend booking as soon as possible, to ensure your place is reserved.
