In general, teachers and learners feel that support for learners with English language acquisition needs for 16-19 year-olds is good. However, there are not enough qualified staff who can support learners for whom English is an additional or second language. As a result, a vast majority of these learners are failing to keep up with the pace of lessons or training sessions.
In addition, there is a lack of national strategy to bring together the organisations working with learners with English language acquisition needs which has led to variation in provision between further education and schools.
