Our aim is to initiate a partnership between researchers, educators, therapists and local authorities to coordinate efforts to support children with English as an Additional Language.

If you have ever wondered how to assess EAL children’s proficiency in English, how long it should take for “New to English” pupils to catch up with their peers, how to support their language development, or how to evaluate whether a child should be referred for language therapy, please consider joining this network.

On the 21st of June, we had our first networking event.  Please follow the relevant menu item to find out more.

We will be hosting a workshop on Wednesday 11th October presented by Annina Hessel (University of Oxford). For more information visit
