Since 2011, CfBT Education Trust has hosted the Primary Language Training Zone website from its charitable funds without any maintenance or updates to the resources. When CfBT decided to cease hosting the site they advised users that the site’s content was freely available under the government open source licence and encouraged users to download any resources of continuing interest.

The Department for Education arranged with CfBT Education Trust for copies of the archived content to be provided to both the Association of Language Learning and the University of Roehampton. We understand that these two organisations are considering how to make some of the resources available via their own websites.
