This online course is for primary and secondary school staff who are seeking guidance, strategies and resources for supporting newly arrived pupils who are new to English, including those who are refugees or asylum seekers.

This highly practical, evidence-informed course will explore what support needs to be in place for learners who use EAL during the following stages:
• before admission
• before the pupil starts
• in their first days
• during the initial weeks.

The course considers the key roles and responsibilities for all staff in developing a whole-school approach to supporting newly arrived pupils who are new to English.

The three-module online course is designed to work around the busy lives of those working in schools - tickets are available for either primary or secondary practitioners. With three hours of online study over a four-week period, this course enables delegates to work at a manageable pace with plenty of time to process course content and consider relevance to context. The course is designed to be highly interactive and collaborative, with opportunities to work with other course participants, course tutors and course material. Module Two consists of a live webinar with opportunities to ask questions and share best practice in real time.

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

Please be aware there may be optional elements within this course intended to extend the learning experience around specific areas. These will be of greater relevance to some contexts. The optional elements are estimated to involve no more than one hour of extra study time.
