Research projects focussing on ESOL led to a diverse range of findings, from how to embed ESOL into Vocational Education and Training (VET) programmes to effective assessment of learners’ progress in these areas. Practitioner researchers also focussed on how to activate learning and engage learners, for example, through technology-rich and creative learning techniques. The ESOL Exhibition site also features rich resources for practitioners, including vocational and embedded learning and learner materials.
