Description

This workshop will provide opportunity for all those contributing to ESOL education in the local area to discuss the issues they and their learners face, and to discuss gaps in provision and resources, and what can be done to improve them.

We will also be launching the NEMP’s new guide: “Helping Beginners Learn.” Full of advice and tips, activity ideas and practical resources, attendees will be able to discuss this as well as a variety of other resources and materials, to share and compare ideas and even take some back to their own learners.

Refreshments and lunch will be provided, and travel expenses with receipts are available on request. Please see below for a guide to the events.
