As experts in assessment we believe it is our duty to provide a forum to debate key educational issues. Our next event will focus on the impact of non-native speakers in the classroom.
It is hard to spot a ‘gifted and talented’ pupil if they are held back by language challenges. It is also hard to spot those with genuine educational needs. What impact does the recent increase in the number of students with English as an additional language have on teachers and the education of mainstream students? How can we ensure every child can access the whole curriculum?
Date: Tuesday 22 May 2012 Time: 1.00 pm – 4.00 pm (registration from 12.30 pm) Venue: 76 Portland Place (the Institute of Physics), London W1B 1NT
