Below is a training package designed to support the development of ESOL (English as a Second or Other Language) students to understand the role of course reps and to elect their own. The materials are designed for institutions to download and deliver in-house. However, please contact us if you require support from sparqs to help deliver initial sessions, customise the materials, etc.
The training is made up of four parts and is designed to be delivered to the whole class. It incorporates language development tasks throughout. There are no timings given for each section and they can be delivered at the speed that suits the students’ understanding. However, generally, the training has been designed so that each of the four parts is likely to take around an hour.
Thanks go to the staff and students of the ESOL Department of Stevenson College (now part of Edinburgh College) who helped design, develop and pilot the materials.
