Raising the Attainment of Bilingual Learners Conference

Tuesday 18 May 2021 – Virtually Hosted via Click Meetings – 09:30 – 12:30

Remote learning had been particularly challenging for learners with English as an Additional language. Due to the national Covid-19 lockdowns, many bilingual learners might have had a limited access to a broad range of English, including the academic language. In order to support EAL learners who have fallen behind, a consistent and targeted catch-up support is likely to be necessary to close the attainment gap.

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.

The conference will include stimulating presentations on a combination of research-based best practices and approaches, as well as opportunities for workshops and discussions.
