Discover ideas and inspiration for new approaches to teaching English in the post-16 sector from the Outstanding Teaching, Learning and Assessment (OTLA English) programme.

The OTLA English programme was funded by the Education and Training Foundation and delivered by ccConsultancy in partnership with That Reading Thing and Skills Digital. Twelve project teams used action research to develop new approaches for teaching English in the post-16 sector, focused upon driving professional development for staff by encouraging practitioners to use action research to explore and integrate those approaches into teaching, learning and assessment.
