The Bell Foundation announces EAL award
The Bell Foundation has recently launched a £3000 award to finance innovative work in improving language education for children learning English as an additional language. The Foundation is seeking applications which demonstrate innovative and practical work which changes lives and overcomes exclusion through language education and which has the potential, if developed and scaled, to have impact on more people.
The Bell Foundation is part of, and governed by, the Bell Educational Trust. The Trust was founded in 1972 with the aim of providing language education, mainly in English, for adult students and young learners; to train teachers and to offer language learning and teacher training experiences that promote international understanding and intercultural exchange.
In a separate move, NALDIC is working with The Bell Foundation over the summer of 2012 to provide two free short courses for EAL co-ordinators and teaching assistants.
