Learners using EAL are an extremely heterogeneous group of pupils. Without recognising the rich diversity that exists within this population, there is a danger of creating a single profile to fit all such learners. This can potentially impact the school staff’s ability to build successful relationships with plurilingual learners, recognise their individual strengths and provide appropriate academic and pastoral support.
The aim of this guide is to support educators in creating learner profiles that will lead to improved learning environments, well-being and academic success for plurilingual learners.
