School Improvement & Development Conference 2023: Book your early-bird place

My New EAL Student: A Ten-Point Plan

Our students may arrive from a range of countries and cultures, with different learning styles, but they still deserve the very best support. This course suggests ten practical things you can do to help support EAL / ESOL learners in your school.

  • Simple but effective strategies
  • How to connect with EAL/ESOL learners
  • Create an inclusive environment

About this course

Many of our learners have English as another language, but the terms EAL and ESOL cover such a wide range of experiences and needs that it’s sometimes difficult to know how to support them. This course will help you understand what it feels like to be in their shoes, avoid assumptions, and recognise that language may not be their only barrier.


Course objectives:

  • Unpick the barriers to learning that EAL students face
  • Develop a toolbox of practical strategies 
  • Find strategies to stretch and challenge ESOL learners


This course is appropriate for primary schools.

  • Headteachers, SLT, pastoral leads, subject leaders
  • This course is suitable for primary and secondary
