The course aims to consider how to develop the messages from previous training:

  • To develop an understanding of how children make progress and develop in terms of bilingual/multilingual language development
  • To explore ways of reflecting diversity
  • To consider further strategies and explore resources that can be used to support the learning of children with English as an additional language
  • To consider ways of creating opportunities for language development
  • To develop an understanding of equitable and inclusive provision for children who may be at risk of underachieving
