Password is committed to helping schools deliver excellence in education for all bi/multilingual students. These learners are highly diverse; they range from newly arrived international students to domestic pupils exposed to home-languages other than English, and this makes providing highly effective support both a significant recruitment opportunity and a complex challenge.
To address this, we are launching three days of in-person CPD aimed at improving understanding of these learners and their families, and sharing proven strategies which will help schools develop a truly welcoming community in which every student thrives, no matter their language background.
Join us for the first of these training days where we begin our journey towards being a community of ‘language-aware’ schools. The morning will be led by our expert speaker, Dr Eowyn Crisfield, and culminate in a pedagogical focus. The afternoon will be best practice advice and actionable ideas for admission and marketing staff as well as EAL practitioners, led by Password’s in-house experts, Dr Helen Wood and Molly Tuttle.
