English for speakers of other languages - policy guidelines for VEC adult literacy schemes - summary document

Teaching ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) to members of linguistic minorities is a relatively new area for most Irish adult literacy services, and so many practitioners feel unsure of how to deal with areas such as assessment, provision, promotion, participation, training and accreditation. NALA has therefore developed these policy guidelines and supports for literacy practitioners dealing with adults whose first language is not English.
