How can we help?

Whether you are just getting started with your EAL strategy or have an established approach which just needs some tweaks, we can help.

From our popular EAL Handbook and online courses, to our bespoke training and consultancy, we have the experience and tools to help.

"The series of courses, as well as the in-house tailored support have enabled our Academy to critically review its practice and processes to such an extent that we are now in a much stronger position to receive new arrivals, monitor and track their progress as well as support teaching and learning across the curriculum. Thank you!"

What our clients say

Our work with the British Section at the Lycée International, Saint Germain-en-Laye

Following a day long interview/planning session with the school leaders we designed a two year academic literacy programme for all secondary teachers, including training, in class coaching and joint classroom resources development. 

We went on to provide training and a handbook for History and Geography teachers across the ASIBA group of schools. Most recently we have worked with primary teachers on assessment frameworks and developing a curriculum which supports pupils to read and write the key text types (or genres) they will encounter.

"The EAL Academy has given us an approach to literacy rooted in theory and practice and customised precisely to our circumstances and requirements. The impact was immediate and tangible: for weeks afterwards staff were telling me how delighted their students were to learn how easily they could make their writing more formal by turning verbs into abstract nouns and that they knew the name for this process: nominalisation."
James Cathcart
Director of the British Section at the Lycée International, Saint Germain-en-Laye

"I wanted to thank you again for such an excellent training session. The staff were energized and enthused by it and once again it has given the section a powerful platform for us all to develop our practice further."
David Jackson
Deputy Director of the British Section at the Lycée International, Saint Germain-en-Laye

In class coaching

"It has been a pleasure working alongside you through the in-class coaching programme. You were able to provide bespoke support targeted at the needs of our school and children, supporting us with direct classroom teaching as well as wider guidance for the whole school."

Pre-recorded online training

Delivery of online pre-recorded EAL sessions for schools in Cambridgeshire, Peterborough, West Norfolk and King’s Lynn along with a bespoke EAL Handbook. 

"I just wanted to say thank you for the links to the ‘teaching English as an additional language’ materials. Succinct advice has been sadly lacking and now everything is summed up brilliantly with links to great materials. We are very grateful."
