This module is part of our highly-regarded MEd TESOL masters programme. 

This module is designed to develop a critical understanding of the key issues affecting ESOL in Scotland, exploring ways in which issues like classroom practice, policy implementation and assessment affect equality, social justice and inclusion.

This course is suitable for teachers of English who are educated to Diploma level in TEFL or DELTA level or equivalent and should have a minimum of three years of practical teaching experience.  Participants will study alongside our full-time Masters students, joining a community of students from all over the world.

The ESOL team at UWS have studied and taught across the globe. In teaching, our ESOL leaders bring both their knowledge and practical experience to the classroom to create an unrivalled learning experience. Our ESOL team are also involved in academic research and regularly attend global conferences to ensure all of our ESOL delegates are confident in teaching and shaping students who are fit for the ever-evolving, modern world.

This is a SCQF Level 11 module, and upon successful completion of the module, students will be awarded 20 credits.
