Schools: Supporting staff; supporting learners

CEC offers a wide variety of training options for schools, from one-off INSET seminars to a whole-school training program for EAL support. 
In the 2013/2014 academic school year, CEC"s "Beyond EAL" training program is being piloted in the UK, as the focus of a project looking at the effects of whole-school training on improving EAL provisions. More information on this program is available to schools interested in maximizing resources for EAL pupils and harmonizing approaches that benefit all learners. 

An article about the pilot program can be found here: MA TESOL students help local schools embrace EAL training

Schools can choose from the ready-made training options outlined here, or request a bespoke seminar/workshop to address a particular issue. 

Additionally, CEC offers consultation and planning services, to help schools evaluate EAL/ELL/bilingual education provisions and create programs designed to meet the needs of all their pupils and implement new programs. 

“Eowyn captures her audience from the moment she starts speaking. Her knowledge of supporting and teaching children as additional English language learners has been an overwhelming support to children and teachers alike. Not only does Eowyn help you to recognise the challenges facing an EAL learner, she provides the knowledge and tools to ‘fix’ them. “
