Working parties

Over the years, projects have emerged from the membership to address topical issues in EAP and have taken the form of working parties (see links below). New bids may come from individual institutions/members, but all projects must include collaborative work across BALEAP member institutions. The aims of the project must be of benefit to the membership as a whole, and a specific outcome, preferably in the form of a publication for dissemination, is expected. Anyone interested in establishing a new project should contact the Research and Publications Officer ( in the first instance. Bids for new projects will be considered by the Executive Committee.

The Testing Working Party aims to provide a base for the spread of information and advice for the development of valid and reliable EAP  language testing practices.

The Can Do Working Party developed the BALEAP Can Do Framework: Competency statements for international students (Master’s level).
