The first of a series of three Regional Achievement Dialogues will be held on the 18th of July at the Stadium of Light, Sunderland

North East Regional Achievement Dialogue

English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)
Exploring the solutions to the ESOL debates and dilemmas

Tuesday, July 18th 2006
10am – 2.30pm

Stadium of Light
Sunderland

This event is free.

This is the first of a series of three Regional Achievement Dialogues. Each event will focus on a key regional training issue. The RAD will provide an opportunity to hear from regional policy makers, providers, practitioners and learners about strategic, developmental and quality issues and how these impact on achievement. They will also provide a platform for discussion to inform and enhance practice, and to shape key strategic developments at national and regional level. ESOL is the topic for the first North East event, and we are delighted to hold this event in partnership with BECON, the North East’s Black and Ethnic Community Network.

There have been a number of changes within ESOL, including a rapid increase in the number of ESOL students due to the expansion of the EU, and a potential increased demand arising from the emphasis on language skills as one of the criteria for citizenship alongside. There has been so much change that NIACE has established a Committee of Enquiry. This event will discuss some of the findings of the interim report. A key aspect of the enquiry for this discussion is looking at ESOL in its wider context, including its relationship to citizenship, migration, settlement, employment, social justice and equality issues.

There will be speakers, workshops, networking and discussions. See the programme in Downloads for full details.

To reserve a place at this seminar, please return the completed booking form to Neil Goodall by July 11th:
