Meeting the Needs of Multilingual Pupils within Diverse Classrooms

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

This highly practical one-day course, with differentiated materials and content for primary and secondary practitioners, will consider how to embed targeted support within lessons, so that all EAL learners can fully access the language of the curriculum, develop their English and achieve in school. The course will give participants the opportunity to explore a range of strategies and resources aimed at integrating content and language development as a key part of day-to-day lessons with the aim of improving learning outcomes for EAL learners.

This course is suitable for:

  • Teaching staff
  • Heads of department
  • Teaching assistants
  • EAL co-ordinators

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 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. Does this mean they are no longer a priority, or that their learning needs can be met without consideration of the specific support that they require? Absolutely not.
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.
