Interactive Learner Resources

These resources have been developed with feedback from our centres and input from ESOL subject experts. Each unit has two learner resources.

The resources are editable and can be adapted to meet the needs of your learners. The resources can be completed by the learner using a digital device or printed off to enable accessibility to the content and to encourage confidence building for learners who are accessing the content at the lower end of the entry-level continuum.

Online Sample Assessment

The sample assessment is accessible on the Ascentis website. The sample is delivered by a web link and can be used by learners and tutors to build confidence and understanding of the assessment platform, Surpass. The sample gives simple instructions on how to navigate the assessments and provides an example of each item type that the learner will come across during the live assessment. Ascentis also supply online tutorial videos to further demonstrate the functionality of Surpass.
