CPD and Consultancy

High quality , bespoke training sessions and consultancy to meet your EAL needs...

Enhancing EAL provision throughout schools through the use of assessment and differentiation.

Beth Southern is the creator of EAL HUB and is an experienced EAL Consultant with a wealth of experience across both primary and secondary, within state sector and private education. Beth was Head of EAL at a large inner-city academy in Manchester for 4 years and more recently was Leading Teacher for EAL at a local council. She has worked with EAL pupils for the last 12 years and has a wide range of experience of working with International Schools around the world. Her training sessions enable teachers and TAs to gain confidence in assessing EAL learners and planning next step support by demonstrating ideas, resources and differentiation which staff can take away and use in school immediately.

We can offer a generic session that covers many of the most popular areas in regards to working with EAL learner or, depending on the needs of the school, the sessions can be adapted to incorporate more specific training on aspects such as:

  • New Arrivals and the first steps to integration
  • Assessment, leveling, EAL registers and tracking
  • The importance of understanding vocabulary and how to boost it in your lessons
  • Boosting reading and writing in Advanced Bilinguals
  • Use of images and film with EAL Learners
  • Working with parents to develop community cohesion
  • Effective intervention methods and strategies

  • Developing the role of the EAL coordinator (consultancy based session)
