ESD resources for ESOL practitioners


New education for sustainable development (ESD) resources for educators, teachers and practitioners who teach English for speakers of other languages are now available to download free of charge.

The resources were commissioned by the Education and Training Founation, delivered by HOLEX and developed and tested by Manchester Adult Education Service, Idea Store at Tower Hamlets Council and Westminster Adult Education Service. Although developed within an adult education context, these resources will be applicable to ESOL teams in other further education settings too.

The resources include:

  • an audit tool to help you find a starting point
  • Sustainability Starts – a simple activity to build understanding about each of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals whilst also developing English language skills
  • a Green Week Toolkit with lesson and workshop plans
  • a map of potential partners and sustainability organisations who could contribute to your ESD work
Levels: Entry 1, Entry 2, Entry 3, Level 1, Level 2
