Closing the EAL Gap Conference: Raising the Attainment of Bilingual Learners

EAL learners will need significant and intensive catch-up support to close an attainment gap that has been intensified by the national Covid-19 lockdown. They may have had a limited or lack of exposure to a broad range of English language, including the academic language needed to be successful across the curriculum.

When teaching pupils with English as an additional language, building vocabulary is key to progressing their level of English in all skills. Our keynote speaker, Dr Victoria Murphy, will talk about the importance of addressing the EAL Word Gap.

Join us for this year’s English as an additional language Conference for brilliant presenters and workshop leaders. The conference will include stimulating presentations on a combination of research-based best practices and approaches, as well as opportunities for workshops and discussions.
