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.
