Leading English in Post Primary Schools - National Seminar.
This full day seminar (09:30 - 15:30) will seek to provide language support to teachers of English as an
Additional Language (EAL), EAL co-ordinators, and Additional Educational Needs (AEN) co-ordinators. There
will be an opportunity to:
- develop understanding of language support and the role of the language support teacher at post-primary level
- explore the importance of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) for languages and assessing EAL learners using materials linked to the CEFR
- utilise the CEFR benchmarks as targets and link them to the EAL learner's curriculum
- discuss and share examples of good practice in linking language support to the curriculum.
