Building Bridges and Finding Common Ground in TEYLs
From the moment an English teacher welcomes young learners into their classroom, the aim is to ensure that something within those learners changes: a new skill, language point, concept or value. This is universal, no matter if that classroom is in a mainstream school or a private learning context. During this workshop, participants will actively explore accessible and practical tools for clear goal-setting, enabling more focused learning activities with their young learners.

Making teaching more impactful with the Pearson Efficacy Framework
As educators, our key role is to help our students learn. A bit of an obvious statement perhaps – but not so easy to realise. As the old adage goes, just because you teach, doesn’t mean learning is happening! How do we know that our teaching is having an impact on learning?
