Reading is a key focus and it is the area where EAL learners typically make slowest progress at KS2, and where the attainment gap is greatest.

This course will:

  • explore the potential barriers to successful reading for EAL learners
  • provide clear guidance on expectations of progress and identification of whole class / intervention strategies which can enable children to access reading and meet age appropriate expectations; these approaches are equally relevant to monolingual pupils who struggle with reading comprehension

To book a place, please email cpdschoolimprovement@telford.gov.uk and include course title, date and time. 

T&W will invoice schools direct, however, should you wish to use credits, please contact CPD@UCS administration on 01743 297168 and we will make the booking on your behalf (credit cost 2.5)

  • the process of children's additional language development when they are in the early stages of developing English competency
