Professional support for teachers and teacher aides

English language learning progressions

The English Language Learning Progressions (ELLP) are key documents for the assessment, planning and teaching of English language learners. They help teachers to choose content, vocabulary, and tasks that are appropriate to each learner's age, stage, and language-learning needs. This may include learners for whom English is a first language but who would benefit from additional language support.

ELLP professional support modules

This English Language Learning Progressions resource is made up of seven modules, and includes guidance on using the ELLP resource for planning and assessment. The resource uses written work and video exemplars so that you can look at the ELLP in your own school context.

The modules can be used in any order and can be used in a variety of ways – on your own, working in small groups, or as part of a whole staff activity. Each module might take about an hour to complete.

At the end of each module you will find suggestions about leading professional development sessions with other teachers.

Making Language and Learning Work

Making Language and Learning Work DVD Covers

The Making Language and Learning Work DVDs demonstrate how to effectively integrate content-area teaching and language learning in mainstream subject classrooms for students from diverse language backgrounds. They show how to integrate effective literacy strategies, and how a range of teachers in different subject areas scaffold language and content area learning. The materials model how to personalise learning by supporting students at different levels of English proficiency in a manageable way in mainstream classes.
