ESOL Initial Assessment Pack

This guide was produced by the Scottish Government’s Lifelong Learning Directorate to support practitioners to undertake initial assessment with their learners. Its aim is to help standardise initial assessment approaches, so that the learner can be placed in the appropriate provision.

It is recommended that providers adopt the principles, approaches and ESOL levels within the guide, and adopt or adapt the assessment materials to suit initial assessment

Alternatively, the entire contents of the Pack (with the exception of the video clips) can be downloaded in Word (22Mb) or pdf (4.3Mb).
