Intervention Groups: Supporting Secondary EAL Learners Beyond the Classroom (Webinar)

This webinar launches new guidance on how to use The Bell Foundation’s classroom guidance and strategies to support secondary EAL learners in intervention groups.

We are excited to launch brand new guidance around planning and running intervention programmes for learners who use English as an Additional Language (EAL). The webinar will be suitable for staff who plan and organise intervention programmes as well as for the EAL specialists, classroom/subject teachers and support staff who run the interventions. The webinar will provide an overview of how our classroom guidance and strategies to support EAL learners can be used to inform intervention sessions as well as in-class support.

Areas of focus will include:

  • An overview of the guidance; 
  • Suggestions on how to use it; 
  • Examples of case studies at different key stages and with learners at different stages of English language proficiency; 
  • Opportunities for questions.
