EAL Leadership: Prioritising EAL in Primary and Secondary Schools

30 August 2019 10:00 am - 16:00 pm

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. They do, however, place greater emphasis on the need for leaders to provide a broad and balanced curriculum that gives all learners the knowledge and opportunities to succeed, and this includes those who use English as an Additional Language (EAL).

This one-day course, with newly developed content, is for school leaders who are seeking innovative ways to drive evidence-informed, impactful EAL interventions in their schools to ensure EAL learners develop detailed knowledge and skills across the curriculum and, as a result, achieve well. This practical course will support leaders in devising school-wide systems, resources and training that will enhance whole school provision and lead to improved educational outcomes for EAL learners.

This course is suitable for:

  • Senior Leadership Team (SLT)
  • Staff with responsibility for leading on EAL
  • School governors with responsibility for EAL

Recommendation rate (2018 participants): 88%

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 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.
