1.2 Scope of the guide

This guide provides advice and examples that you might find useful if you are planning or delivering ESOL for refugees who have been resettled in Scotland, including through the Syrian Resettlement Programme (SRP) or the Vulnerable Children’s Resettlement Programme (VCRS).  The guide is based on the experiences of ESOL practitioners, strategic leads, learners and relevant experts practising in Scotland.

Practitioners emphasised that many of the lessons discussed in relation to refugee adults being resettled in Scotland can be applied to other groups of learners.
