Free EAL Teaching Resources

The Bell Foundation offers a range of free resources to support EAL teaching and development within schools.

In January 2017, a free tool, the award-winning EAL Assessment Framework for Schools, was launched. The improved version of the Framework, published in 2019, is now accompanied by an interactive digital EAL Assessment Tracker and reporting tool.

This website offers a huge range of free advice and resources for the classroom to support learners with EAL. There is also information on online, blended, and face-to-face training courses, as well as free webinars. By developing the knowledge and skills of school staff the Foundation aims to improve the attainment of children who use EAL.
