Underpinning the EAL Academy's work is the belief that rather than posing a problem, EAL learners present schools with exciting opportunities - getting it right for these learners will benefit the whole school and often in the most astonishing of ways. Our consultancy services, which form the lion's share of our work, are all aimed at delivering just that whole school change.
Our consultancy work is grounded in a deep understanding of what makes a school tick in a multicultural setting, rigorous analysis of data, and a thoughtful appreciation of the context. We begin by assessing the needs of your school, your teachers, your EAL learners and your community, and work with you to design an approach which meets those needs, shaping and adapting our training and consultancy to suit your situation.
