Abstract

This project explored provision for student teachers in England who are working with pupils learning EAL. It also examines to what extent teacher educators feel prepared to extend the knowledge base, skills and practices of student teachers as they seek to meet the needs of EAL learners. The project blends research and practice to develop modules for trainee teachers and teacher educators with the long-term aim of these professional learning materials being adopted by education providers. Data was collected in the form of tutor interviews, student-teacher focus group interviews and online questionnaires.
