Draft ESOL Strategy: Thanks for taking part!

The draft ESOL strategy consultation is now closed. 

Thanks to everyone who has taken part over the last few months. We've been delighted with the response received and look forward to launching the document in October. Keep an eye on our website for updates.


NATECLA believes an ESOL strategy is vital to bring stability to the ESOL landscape after decades of shifting policies at the hands of successive governments. Together with other stakeholders from across the sector and based on existing documents such as the strategies for Wales and Scotland, we have formulated a draft ESOL strategy for England with a projected launch in September 2016.

To ensure this document reflects the needs of the whole ESOL community as well as other organisations and agencies that have a stake in ESOL  , we want to consult with as many colleagues as possible. 

We have put together an online consultation in the form of a short survey for teachers, students and anyone else affected by ESOL policy to compete. This survey contains a summary of the main options for the strategic objectives from the draft strategy. This on-line consultation will run from 30 May until 17 July 2016.
