We are delighted to announce that EAL HUB conferences are returning for 2024

Due to the huge success of the 1 day events in early 2020  (a number of which had to be cancelled due to the pandemic) Beth will be visiting a number of locations to share amazing ideas for working with EAL Learners from new arrivals to advanced bilinguals. These events are ideal for EAL coordinators, teachers with EAL Learners in their classes, TAs supporting EAL students and SLT. The day will be a mix of information, practical activities, applying things to your own setting and learning from others. The sessions will also share the new EAL platform EAL STAR and offer delegates big discounts for both  EAL STAR and Inclusion Hub memberships 🙂 All sessions will run based on minimum numbers being met so please do spread the events to others in your trust, network or local schools.
