Better Bilingual

Better Bilingual provides support to educational settings in Bristol and surrounding areas to ensure that learners with English as an Additional Language (EAL) are empowered to exceed expectations.


Better Bilingual training sessions may be planned within the setting’s EMA Action Plan or as ‘stand-alone’ INSET for which there will be a separate charge.


Consultancy will begin with an hour’s free ‘scoping’ visit in which the Better Bilingual consultant will work collaboratively with the educational setting to identify BME/EAL strengths as well as areas for development.


Better Bilingual is able to direct you to a wide range of useful resources to support this work, many of which are free.
