English as an Additional Language

'Specialist EAL support should be available for new arrivals from qualified teachers or teaching assistants who have received appropriate training and support. More advanced learners of English should have continuing support in line with their varying needs as they develop competencies over time.' 

[Ofsted Jan 2014]     

The EMGRT Achievement Service provides advice, training and tutor support for schools who wish to ensure that they are providing the high quality support necessary to ensure that new arrivals and other EAL learners achieve their full potential. 

We offer the following services:

  • Tutor support for EAL learners
  • Advice for schools
  • Support for EAL Co-ordinators
  • Staff Training
  • Interpretation and Translation
  • First Language Assessment

To find out more about these services use the tabs on the left of this page.

How to arrange for EAL support

For support for new arrivals use the electronic referral form on the portal. Look under  'E' for EAL.  A member of our team will then contact you to arrange an advisory visit (free of charge to Lancashire schools) and to discuss any further support.

For any queries or to arrange any other support for your EAL learners or for your staff (eg annual support packages, short term interventions, staff training, support for EAL co-ordinators, interpretation) please contact our office on:
