Flexible and varied training options with The EAL Academy

The EAL Academy offers a range of approaches to assist schools in addressing the diverse needs of their pupils, including those with English as an additional language.

Bringing together specialists in English as an additional language, ethnic minority achievement, and the teaching of academic language, we offer training which is firmly rooted in whole school development, empowering teachers and leaders to effect change throughout the school.

Our training takes many different forms: from the single day course attended by a teacher through to our in-class coaching teacher development programme, we offer training which is adaptable to your needs and situation.

School Based Training

All our short courses can be run in-school for multiple members of staff and tailored to your school’s particular needs.  This can be a very effective way of bringing about change across the school and ensuring all staff sign-up.  Our school-based training:

I have really enjoyed this course and have found it very interesting. I have enjoyed completing each unit and the structure has worked really well for me, helping me to manage my time around work.

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.
