Citizenship materials for ESOL learners

The citizenship materials for ESOL learners are designed to help teachers to embed citizenship content in ESOL lessons.

Although use of these resources is no longer required by the Home Office to support applications for citizenship and settlement, we are continuing to make them available due to popular demand.


Free training and materials

NIACE and LLU+ developed these Citizenship materials for ESOL learners in 2006. Written in consultation with learners and practitioners, the materials contain a range of ideas for activities in a citizenship context which have been very popular.

In 2010 the Home Office commissioned NIACE to update the English pack and adapt it so that it better meets the community cohesion/active citizenship agenda. The pack now contains updated materials and new chapters including:

  • updated sections on What is citizenship, Parliament and the UK as a diverse society

  • new sections on Volunteering, Getting involved in your community and Faiths and beliefs.
