Rethinking EAL: How to create a whole-school approach Tes International

    • Education

In this episode of the Tes International podcast we chat with Chris Woodhams, assistant principal (Academic) at St. Joseph’s Institution International School in Malaysia about how the school revamped its focus on students with English as an Additional Language (EAL).
He explains how this involved bringing in outside consultants to help identify areas of strength and improvement, doubling its EAL department staff cohort and embedding a whole school approach to EAL including boosting training for staff to do this - and why all of this requires trial and error and giving staff time to develop these skills.
