The strategy provides an updated and informed context for the provision of publicly funded ESOL in Scotland. It places ESOL in the broad context of learning in Scotland and sets out the strategic direction for ESOL for the next five years.
The aims of the strategy are to build on successes to date and to continue to improve the quality, co-ordination and delivery of ESOL provision for all residents in Scotland for whom English is not a first language.
In helping to progress the direction of this refreshed strategy, Education Scotland will work with learners, key partners and providers to draw up an implementation plan to work towards achieving the outcomes of the strategy. In doing so, Education Scotland will seek commitment from learners, key partners and providers to support and progress actions within the implementation plan.
The strategy is available online now.
