Supporting early career teachers with learners using EAL: why and how
- 13 October 2021
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.
This free webinar explores how subject teachers can support EAL learners to develop the language skills needed in humanities subjects.
The webinar will explore practical ways secondary subject teachers can support their learners to ensure that their proficiency in English is not a barrier to enjoying and succeeding in the humanities subjects.
