ESOL Qualification and Curriculum Review

Thank you for your interest in the ESOL Qualification and Curriculum Review.

In response to the planned Department for Education review of the ESOL curriculum and the Ofqual review of the ESOL qualifications, we have drafted a paper which sets out practical proposals, informed by research evidence, to improve ESOL methodology, standards, and qualifications. We are seeking feedback on the paper.

The consultation survey closes on Friday 8 December.

If you would prefer to submit feedback via email, please send your comments to

The findings will be shared in early 2024, and will be developed further through a series of roundtables.
