Students into Schools logo

With an intuitive nature and over 15 years front line experience working with refugee children and other minority ethnic children, Nola Ellen has skilfully transformed her practice based knowledge into a series of dynamic workshops that aim to educate and inspire positive change.

    

Nola is an experienced and insightful educator and trainer. She draws on her extensive of experience working within the refugee sector in the UK alongside her experience working with children and families in refugee camps in Europe, Jordan and Lebanon. She uses the stories of refugee children from her practice to build understanding, compassion and empathy among her audience.   

Her sessions feature children's voices throughout. We hear: why they came to the UK; what the journey was like; and how life in the UK has been. Nola has sought feedback from a number of people from the refugee community on the content of her sessions.  

Participants leave her session feeling better informed and with their eyes, hearts and minds opened, feeling inspired to do their part in ensuring their schools, communities, services and settings are welcoming and inclusive for all.

SiSExtra Workshop - EAL Support 3: The Language Needs of EAL Pupils

Date: 07 February 2019
Time: 17:00

Booking and Further Information

SiS Logo

This workshop will focus on identifying and discussing the varied language needs of EAL pupils. With high numbers of young people who identify as bilingual or who for whom English is not their first language in local schools in Leeds and West Yorkshire the session will help anyone working in these locations to better support in the classroom and beyond.

Some young people may have perfectly fluent spoken English but may struggle with their writing; others may need more support on understanding what teaching staff are saying in order to effectively access the curriculum. This session will outline the ways in which an individual pupil's needs may be identified, and what mechanisms are put in place to then support the learning of the language.

Whether you are teaching Music or Mathematics, Physics or English Literature, or you are delivering sports coaching or one-off workshops these sessions will provide practical preparation for your placement, crucial training for your CV and transferable skills relevant to the graduate workplace. There will also be the opportunity for you to become a student scholar on a project funded by the Leeds Institute for Teaching Excellence.
