This review was carried out by Mary Kett in conjunction with Education and Training Boards Ireland (ETBI) at the request of SOLAS, the Further Education and Training Authority.


The review examines current English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) practice in ETB programmes at National Framework Qualification (NFQ) levels 1-3. It includes Adult Literacy and Back to Education Initiative (BTEI) programmes, with specific emphasis on low skilled and unemployed migrants.


Key areas include:

- A desk based analysis of existing research into English Language policy and provision at both national and international levels.

- An analysis of existing quantitave statistical administrative data.

- A detailed survey of all ETBs, to establish the actual statistical position in relation to ESOL, as well as information on recruitment, assessment, provision, accreditation and staffing.

- A consultation process with ETB stakeholder representatives from all ETBs, as well as other national stakeholders.

- Recommendations for inclusion in national guidelines for ETB ESOL provision.
