Improving Language, Improving Lives

Resources for ESOL tutors

This resource pack was developed as part of Improving Language, Improving Lives, a three-year project which aimed to enhance ESOL screening and provision delivery in prisons and community rehabilitation settings.

This pack includes resources for ESOL tutors to use with learners who are in prison or who have had recent experience of the criminal justice system.

It is based on the principles of Learning and Work Institute’s Citizens’ Curriculum model, which promotes flexible, locally-led programmes of study that are co-designed with learners and cover an interlinked set of skills and capabilities.

The project was delivered by Learning and Work Institute in partnership with De Montfort University (DMU). The project was funded by The Bell Foundation.
