Webinar: EAL and Initial Teacher Training

27 June 2019 16:00 pm - 17:00 pm

EAL and Initial Teacher Training hosted by Dr. Yvonne Foley, University of Edinburgh and Dr. Jean Conteh, Leeds University. This webinar will present findings from a research project exploring the perceptions of both teacher educators and students as to what extent initial teacher education programmes fully prepare students to meet the language and literacy needs of EAL pupils. Beginning with questionnaire surveys and in-depth interviews with both tutors and students in institutions across England, the research developed case studies of two university ITE providers, taking into account both the traditional PGCE route and employment-based routes, such as “School Direct”. Findings and recommendations from the project will be discussed alongside an introduction to sets of resources that are being developed and piloted as part of the study.
