NEW: Guidance and resources for schools and teachers to support pupils who use EAL and their families to help mitigate any learning and language loss experienced during school closures.
The Bell Foundation supported the National Association for Language Development In the Curriculum (NALDIC), the UK subject association for English as an Additional Language.
NALDIC’s mission is to promote the effective teaching and learning of English as an Additional Language in UK schools by providing a welcoming, professional forum. NALDIC promotes EAL research; best practice and promotes plurilingualism within the UK’s multilingual society.
The Bell Foundation provided support for NALDIC’s annual conference and regional events.
NALDIC runs a series of seminars, CPD programmes and knowledge exchange events. The NALDIC annual conference takes place in November and offers an opportunity for EAL practitioners and educationalists to gather and discuss the latest EAL pedagogy, policy and to share best practice.
NALDIC runs a network of effective networking groups for teachers, teacher educators and specialists. Groups regularly engage in discussions about how to meet the diverse needs of pupils, teachers, classrooms and schools.
