Aspirational learning for all

Linking research, evidence and pedagogy to support EAL, SEND and gifted learners

Tuesday 23 April (Qatar); Wednesday 24 April (Abu Dhabi); Thursday 25 April (Dubai)

All days 9am to 2pm

Join us at one of our one-day conferences to take a deep dive into evidence-based approaches to teaching and learning, specifically tailored to support the needs of EAL and SEND students. However, the principles explored will provide schools with a useful framework to support all students, including gifted and talented, to reach their full potential.

The workshop will start by establishing a solid foundation rooted in evidence for these approaches.

From there, we’ll discuss actionable teaching and classroom strategies, equipping senior and middle leaders, inclusion specialists, and teachers with tools they can immediately implement.

We’ll be joined by a range of expert speakers, all of whom have personal experience working with EAL and SEND learners within the classroom and jointly bring together decades of educational experience. Collectively, they offer expertise spanning various facets of education, including leadership in academic institutions, second language acquisition, special educational needs provision, holistic student support, and language and literacy assessment.
