Course description

For the Autumn term, training from EMAS continues to be a 'self-guided' offer, with a walk through of reading, reflection and activities to be undertaken independently, followed by a webinar where the key points will be discussed, questions answered and guidance given for individual situations.

The course materials will be sent out to anyone interested by email in September.
The webinar is on 14th October 2020.

A course to support all teachers in schools to welcome and teach new arrivals with little or no English, consisting of self-guided learning (activities, quizzes, reading and reflection etc.) followed by a webinar to recap and address individual school issues.

Course Instructor: Mary Badham, Karen Thomas, Rebecca Reeve

A link to the Webinar will be sent to you prior to the course.
