In this On The Couch we have educationalists with an interest in EAL and refugee education.


They share their expertise and insights into how schools and teachers can enhance the experiences for EAL and refugee children.


Meeting the needs of all pupils is a priority for all teachers.  This panel webinar offers advice and ideas as well as practical strategies to help support those for whom English is not their first language and/or have recently moved to the UK, some having sought asylum.


The panel also offers an insight into the how such children may be experiencing education, the barriers they face and the richness that they bring to a school community.


Our panel of refugee and EAL education experts offer advice and respond to questions. All masterfully chaired by Catherine Carden.


This is an ideal webinar for all working in educational settings, especially those working in schools with a significant proportion of children with EAL or supporting refugee communities.


What's more it is FREE!!!!

  • When you purchase this webinar the process will ask for your address and talk of shipping!

    Obviously this will be sent to your email address as a link and not to your home, so do not worry.  You will need to add your address but just the first line will suffice.

    The joy of some technologies is that they do not quite do what you need them to!!!
