ESOL offender learning conference
The British Council and The Bell Foundation sponsored a continuing professional development conference for ESOL tutors, teachers and practitioners working in prison settings, as well as those involved in managing or leading provision of offender education.
The conference was part of the English Nexus Offender Learning project, which has the aim of connecting ESOL professionals through opportunities for developing practice and knowledge-sharing.

The online sessions provided teachers, managers and professionals with an opportunity to:
- find out about the latest developments and research in the UK prison education sector.
- inform discussion topics and engage in current debate with a panel of experts on the challenges of teaching ESOL in prisons.
The English Nexus Offender Learning project is a partnership between the British Council and The Bell Foundation, and is co-funded by the European Integration Fund, to provide support to ESOL teachers and learners in prison contexts, through new resources for learners and continuing professional development for educators.
