Award winning academic language and skills course available

Develop EAP: A Sustainable Academic Skills Course, the winner of the British Council’s ELTons Award 2017 for Innovation in Learner Resources, is now available for download.

The course is being released free with the hope that this is a first step in building a global community of EAP practitioners who engage with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Please visit the Develop EAP website ( and the Resources page to download the booklet and accompanying Moodle component.

The focus of the course is on the development of academic skills, providing a scaffold to support collaborative learning through a group essay and a group presentation project. The course was written for anyone entering English medium university study and it is expected that teachers in different contexts will supplement it differently, depending on the particular language needs of their students.

I’ll be interested to hear what our EAL and tert prep experts think.
