ESOL Pathfinder Project
The ESOL Pathfinder project was a national project led by the Adult Basic Skills Strategy Unit that aimed:
- To test out the core teaching and learning infrastructure for adults whose first language is not English. The core infrastructure tested included the national standards for adult literacy, the adult ESOL core curriculum, screening, initial assessment and placement, diagnostic assessment, individual learning plans, learning materials, systems for reporting progress and achievements, including the use of tests and/or qualifications.
- To investigate a range of delivery models to improve language and literacy levels.
- To disseminate effective practice to other teachers and providers.
The ESOL Pathfinder project ran from January 2003 to December 2003. Dissemination has been via a series of regional and national conferences and this website.
