Enhancing EAL provision in schools through the use of assessment and differentiation.
Beth Southern is the creator of EAL HUB and is an experienced EAL Consultant and a Specialist Leader of Education (SLE) for EAL. She has a wealth of experience across both primary and secondary, within state sector and private education. Beth was Head of EAL at a large inner-city academy in Manchester for 4 years and more recently was Leading Teacher for EAL at a local council. She has worked with EAL pupils for the last 15 years and has a wide range of experience of working with International Schools around the world. Her training sessions enable teachers and TAs to gain confidence in assessing EAL learners and planning next step support by demonstrating ideas, resources and differentiation which staff can take away and use in school immediately.
SLE and consultancy can be offered for a bespoke provision, looking at your school holistically and planning next steps for improving your EAL offering. Beth is very experienced at working with EAL Leads and SLT, offering achievable next step suggestions and ongoing support as required.

SLE WORK (specialist leader of education):
I love working alongside school to offer bespoke provision to improve how you support your EAL learners. SLE sessions look at your school as a whole and build targets that we can work on together. Most schools have 2 days of training per term. You will receive ongoing reports, targets and support for the duration of our partnership:
Minimum of 2 days booked (not consecutive unless required) - £550 per day
There are often discounts available and we are sometimes able to work with a school's budget, if we have availability, so please get in touch to discuss this!
** We offer REMOTE training on the use of EAL HUB resources, including how to get the most out of PIVOT picture book packs, Reading Hero Packs, the video resources and standalone mats and resources. If you would like to book a comprehensive "How best to use EAL HUB" session, see many of the resources in action, completed activities and sample work then this is available at £150 for a 90 minute twilight session.
