The English as an Additional Langauge Service
The EAL service provides advice and guidance for schools and early years settings to enable them to support children and young people for whom English is an additional language in response to EAL pupils’ diverse learning needs.

Being part of the Northumberland Inclusive Education Service, the EAL Service sits within the Low Incidence Team managed by Allison Cox.

The EAL Service supports educational settings, children and young people from 0-25 years across the county of Northumberland. The existing team consists of three teachers and three assistants.

The Role
The Northumberland Inclusive Education Service would like to appoint an outstanding English as an Additional Language teacher to join our dedicated and enthusiastic EAL team.

This part time post (0.4 fte) will involve working initially in the south east of the county. There will be occasions when travelling to schools across Northumberland is required as the county enjoys becoming more culturally diverse. Although this is a peripatetic role, the existing team members are available for support and we have a strong team-working ethos. The office base for the team is Aesca House in Ashington.

The successful candidate will have experience of teaching EAL pupils in mainstream settings across more than one key stage.

In addition, the appointed teacher will have the skills to provide high quality training and be able to advise school leaders, teachers and assistants to support pupils in developing their English language and to narrow their gaps in attainment.

This position involves working with EAL pupils who have settled in Northumberland for many different reasons including those seeking refuge from areas of conflict.

This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the work of the EAL team as we continue to develop our service and adapt to current teaching challenges.
