EAL Coordinators: Organising Impactful EAL Provision for Plurilingual Learners (Online Course)

This online course aims to provide EAL Coordinators with the theoretical knowledge and practical strategies required to support them in organising impactful and inclusive EAL provision in their school.

This course for EAL coordinators working in international schools will help you develop your understanding of what impactful and inclusive EAL provision looks like, and offers practical strategies to help achieve this. 

On this course, you will:  

  • Critically review key theories around language acquisition and consider the implications for the organisation of EAL provision at your school.   
  • Explore the role of an EAL coordinator and be introduced to approaches to data collection and developing a whole school language policy.   
  • Reflect on the different approaches to EAL provision typically found in international schools.  
  • Learn about dimensions of inclusive practice and explore strategies for developing them within your specific school context.  

In the implementation phase of the course, you will apply what you have learned by drafting an inclusive language policy or creating an action plan outlining next steps for improving EAL provision in your own context.   

This three-module course is designed to work around the busy schedules of professionals in international schools. With five hours of flexible online study over a 4.5-week period, the course enables you to work at a manageable pace with plenty of time to process course content and apply relevant insights to your context. The course is designed to be highly interactive and collaborative, with opportunities to work with other course participants, course tutors and course material.  

The course is suitable for both primary and secondary practitioners.  

A certificate will be awarded for successful completion of the course.
