In late April this year, ATESOL ACT asked the Board of Senior Secondary Studies to consider issues raised by ATESOL ACT members regarding the draft English Framework. Although the closing date for comments had passed, the BSSS CEO, Mr Martin Watson, generously agreed to convene an open Zoom meeting for ATESOL ACT invitees. An open invitation was sent to all those on our Mail Chimp mailing list. The meeting was held on 4 May and attended by 14 ATESOL ACT invitees, plus four BSSS members and one BSSS invitee. Following the meeting, and in consultation with all ATESOL ACT attendees, ATESOL ACT President Helen Moore compiled elaborated Notes from the meeting and sent them to Mr Watson.
Mr Watson has now written to Helen notifying ATESOL ACT that the final version of the Framework, together with the response to the ATESOL ACT Notes, is now on the BSSS website.
