The Bell Foundation provides guidance to school staff about supporting provision for learners who use EAL. This section includes guidance for schools and professionals under two categories: Guidance for Schools and Guidance for Initial Teacher Training Providers.
This guidance focuses on different aspects of provision for learners who use English as an Additional Language, such as effective teaching of learners who use EAL (including the Great Ideas pages), guidance by curriculum subject, parental engagement and bilingual support. It is aimed at teachers, members of senior leadership teams, EAL co-ordinators and teaching assistants.
Some of the guidance in this section of the website was formerly available on EAL Nexus.

This guidance for initial teacher programme providers, leads and tutors, aims to support them to prepare their student teachers to work in diverse multilingual classrooms and meet the learning needs of their EAL pupils.
