NEW: Guidance and resources for schools and teachers to support pupils who use EAL and their families to help mitigate any learning and language loss experienced during school closures.
The Bell Foundation works with a range of partners to produce robust, evidence-based research which furthers the key objectives of the programme.
The Bell Foundation has commissioned the UCL Institute of Education to conduct a literature review to understand gaps in evidence, and to conduct extensive quantitative analysis of the retention and attainment of young people (16-25) with ESOL needs in college and post-compulsory educational environments. The literature review will be published at the end of October 2020.
The ESOL Programme seeks to enable young people and migrant workers to develop their English language skills as a means to achieving their social, educational and/or employment goals.
