    • make effective use of information on learners’ starting points to plan and measure learners’ ongoing progress
    • provide learners on ESOL programmes with good opportunities to scrutinise and correct their own work for spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors.
  • Ensure that leaders and managers have detailed information on learners’ next steps to inform their planning of the curriculum, by:
    • systematically collecting information on the programmes learners choose to follow when they complete their current programmes
    • understanding how learners’ current programme choices influence the programme(s) they choose in the future.
