Bilingual New Arrival Conferencing (BiNAC)
This is a practical workshop style session focussing on support strategies teachers can use in order to help a pupil new to English to access the language of the curriculum. We are also able to ofer this session to Newly Qualified Teachers
(NQTs). See New Arrivals Training.
Advanced Bilingual Learners (ABLs)
This generic training session looks at how practitioners can meet the language-learning needs of more advanced learners of English as an additional language. The session is suitable for staff working with pupils who have been here at least two years and who have already acquired fluency in everyday conversational English. It focuses on ways of improving pupils' use of more academic language across a range of curricular areas. It is most appropriate for teachers working in Key Stages 2, 3 and 4.
We are also able to offer training on a range of subjects related to EMA and EAL to meet your school’s particular needs, for example race equality, SEN/EAL, school self evaluation, cultural/language awareness and family learning.
