Outstanding teaching, learning and assessment: case study on operational project led by Capacity London

Principal focus of the project

The project focused on English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) provision in community settings for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) women who are citizens of non-EU countries.

What is this about and what were the main findings?

The key aim of the project was to identify and extend existing excellent practice in the teaching of English to small and diverse groups of disadvantaged female learners in community settings and to gain further insights into what constitutes outstanding teaching, learning and assessment. This project found that learners became more independent and confident in their ability to learn. Using peer mentors led to better progress for all learners and increased the value and impact of learner voice through the reflection process, as tutors gained a much better awareness of what was working and where the issues were.
