Event description

Description

This practical one-day course, with updated content, aims to enhance the way EAL co-ordinators work with teachers and teaching assistants in primary and secondary settings, enabling them to plan and prioritise effective provision for EAL learners. It will introduce guidance, strategies and resources to build upon existing skills, and consider ways in which EAL co-ordinators can help colleagues to embed a whole school approach to support EAL learners. Participants will develop an understanding of how best to meet the needs of all EAL learners through effective induction, progress tracking and provision that integrates a targeted language focus in all classrooms.

This course is suitable for:

  • EAL co-ordinators
  • Heads of department
  • Other school staff with responsibility for EAL

Recommendation rate (2018 participants): 94%

All Bell Foundation courses are informed by the latest research on EAL, Initial Teacher Education and Continuing Professional Development. The courses also draw on the latest developments in pedagogy and the education sector and are designed to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence of school staff so they can provide more effective support for EAL learners.

The proposed changes to the Education Inspection Framework from Ofsted, which could be implemented from September 2019, do not mention EAL pupils as a distinct group. Does this mean they are no longer a priority, or that their learning needs can be met without consideration of the specific support that they require? Absolutely not.

The Bell Foundation’s Summer School courses will explore what schools and teachers should focus on regarding teaching and learning in diverse multilingual classrooms to ensure they continue to meet the teaching and learning needs of learners who use English as an Additional Language.

A new pricing structure (which includes training, course materials, lunch and light refreshments) has been introduced this year.
