Developing literacy for a multilingual world

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

Do you have:
- pupils that understand the content of their GCSE or A-level course really well but struggle to write good exam answers?
- pupils whose English seems to be stuck and not getting any better?
- an increasing number of EAL pupils?
- teachers who are keen to develop their own EAL expertise?

We can help.

We are a school improvement business with a focus on the language of the classroom and subject-specific literacy.

We work with teachers, schools, school groups and local authorities to help pupils and students achieve and enable schools to flourish.

Our team of consultants, trainers and serving teachers have a breadth of experience gained both in the UK and internationally in the fields of academic literacy, ethnic minority achievement and English as an additional language.

Our training, consultancy and resources are tailored to meet your needs and maximise their impact with your team. Our training can be run as a twilight, a full day or a series of shorter sessions. We can work with individuals, small teams and larger whole school groups.

What our clients say:
“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
“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!

“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.
