Supporting ESOL learners and digital literacy

Find out how participants on the Oustanding Teaching Learning and Assessment North East and Cumbria programme worked with ESOL learners to help them develop their digital literacy skills.

About the projects

Some projects focussed explicitly on providing a foundation course towards the Essential Digital Skills qualification, whilst others worked to develop a bridge between learning, and life and work:-

  • Barnsley Adult Skills and Community Learning developed a short Essential Digital Skills course for lower level ESOL learners.
  • Islington Adult Community Learning developed a short Essential Digital Skills course for entry level ESOL learners to enable them to confidently access email and Zoom across a range of devices.
  • Manchester Adult Education Service explored how far their existing learning app could be used as a remote bridge course to develop the (ESOL and literacy) learners’ digital literacy skills in preparation for blended learning.
  • Newcastle City Learning investigated learners’ feelings about digital note-taking in health and social care with both ESOL and English cohorts.
