The new EAL Assessment Framework enables teachers to establish a baseline for their EAL pupils and to track progress in their acquisition of English. The course introduces the new Framework and provide opportunities to apply it through case study examples.  It aims to provide practitioners with the knowledge and understanding to do this in an informed way. Links between the new Framework and the DfE Proficiency Scale will be made, enabling school staff to make accurate judgements about their EAL pupils’ proficiency in English across the curriculum for the Spring Census return.
