eal summer school

This summer, The Bell Foundation offers a series of high quality, one-day EAL training workshops. They are designed to develop teacher's skills, knowledge and confidence so they can provide more effective support for EAL learners. 

Set in beautiful grounds and within easy reach of Cambridge city centre, these specialist workshops will be delivered by highly qualified and experienced trainers. The programme includes five different workshops delivered in four days from 30 August  to 2 September 2016. Each workshop will run from 10am to 4pm with appropriate breaks for lunch and refreshments.

The price for each workshop is £175 (or £150 when you book the EAL coordinator and Skills for EAL teacher educators workshops together).
