This online course aims to help international school staff develop their understanding of what impactful and inclusive EAL provision looks like and offers practical strategies to help achieve this.
• Learn what current research says about supporting plurilingual learners and consider the implications for the organisation of EAL provision in their schools.
• 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 their specific school context.
In the implementation phase of the course, participants will apply what they have learned by drafting an inclusive language policy or creating an action plan outlining next steps for improving EAL provision in their own context.
This three-module course is designed to work around the busy schedules of professionals in schools. With five hours of online study over a four-week period, the course enables participants to work at a manageable pace with plenty of time to process course content and apply relevant insights to their contexts.
