Scottish Presenters at NATECLA National Conference

Here at NATECLA Scotland, we’re delighted to see strong Scottish representation at this years NATECLA National Conference….

An exciting range of speakers will showcase Scotland’s contribution to ESOL teaching at the sold out NATECLA National Conference 2019 in Birmingham. Amanda Avison from Dundee and Angus College will be delivering a workshop on how to best determine ESOL learners’ pronunciation needs as part of the initial assessment process with a focus on practical ways of addressing the identified areas of development.

Emily Bryson’s session ‘Literally Speaking’ promises to be an exciting opportunity for participants not only in terms of examining current practice in teaching speaking but also in terms of gaining an in-depth understanding of what activities develop effective communication skills for learners both in and outside the classroom.

Jo Jarvis from the Glasgow ESOL Forum’s Volunteer Tutor Project will offer an overview of ESOL volunteering in Scotland in her workshop titled “A closer look at Volunteer Led ESOL in Scotland: sharing good practice” . The workshop aims to provide an opportunity for delegates to examine their own practice through practical support scenarios and to share their ideas and examples of good practice with other practitioners in the sector.
