About Better Bilingual

Better Bilingual comprises a dedicated team of proactive and client-focused education consultants and teachers, with a wealth of experience in supporting school improvement. We specialise in enhancing educational provision for pupils from Black, Asian and Ethnic Minority (BAME) backgrounds, many of whom have English as an Additional Language (EAL)

Successfully collaborating with schools and partners since October 2016, our ongoing mission is to improve EAL provision through school consultancy, coaching and training, including ITE and CPD, as well as direct pupil teaching, assessments and action planning.

We value BAME and EAL parents, carers and communities as key partners in the education process and invite expressions of interest in collaborative work on BAME- or EAL-related school projects. Please send initial ideas to our Director:

Better Bilingual senior education consultants are qualified EAL Academy Associates. If you would like to celebrate or further develop your whole school EAL provision, do consider the EAL Quality Mark award
