About the webinar

This workshop will begin by exploring inclusive English teaching, which involves creating a learning environment that respects and values the diverse backgrounds, abilities, and needs of all students.

The next stage of the workshop will demonstrate how to differentiate the curriculum, linking support strategies to assessment strategies that align with all Department of Education assessment policies.

Finally, we will discuss understanding challenging learner behavior and preparing for multi-level teaching to create a supportive psychosocial learning environment.

This workshop aims to provide you with practical ideas to assist in planning inclusive lesson plans, conducting inclusive lessons, and setting assessments that are inclusive for teaching English as a first additional language.
