Developing literacy for a multilingual world

Welcome to The EAL Academy - specialists in school improvement, and consultants and leaders in the fields of literacy, English as an additional language and ethnic minority achievement.

Who are we?
We are a team of school improvement specialists, consultants and leaders in the fields of literacy, English as an additional language and ethnic minority achievement.

What do we do?
Collaborative learning is at the heart of our approach - we work with schools and teachers to help pupils achieve and enable schools to flourish. We work with local authorities, schools and teachers offering training, consultancy and a wealth of experience to help their particular pupils achieve.

Our courses and consultancy are constantly reshaped to meet the particular needs of a school, group of schools or local authority. We fit the delivery method to the institution: our courses can be run as twilights, in whole day sessions, at weekends or in any combination of the three. All include an online element to encourage further reading and the sharing of resources and experiences outside the taught sessions.

Our interaction with clients is consistently prompt, thorough and reliable. Our training is always interactive,indeed, we practice what we preach!

What our clients say:
“I found this module extremely useful when looking at and analysing my current practice and that of the schools I work in when it comes to identifying EAL pupils with SEN. It has made me challenge my thinking and will impact on the way we can assess pupils, adopting a more thorough approach, using evidence/information already available and using it to build pupil profiles. I look forward to my next module!

Lynn Heath

Swansea EMLAS
“I have really enjoyed this course and have found it really interesting, I have enjoyed completing each unit and the structure has worked really well for me, helping me to manage my time around work. The communication from the tutors has also been great.

Christina Dack

Lynn Grove High School, Norfolk
“I have found all the units informative and they have made me consider my own practice and how strategies are working within the school. Each unit has given me things to think more deeply about and consider how I can implement some of them to improve current practice.

Jane Singh

Brewster Avenue Infants, Peterborough
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!
