Beth Southern has over 12 years’ experience of working with EAL learners across both primary and secondary, independent and state sector and international schools. Previously a Head of EAL in a large inner-city UK school, Beth knows what it’s like to have very high numbers of EAL learners operating at a wide range of levels. Having set up the department and taken it through a successful Ofsted inspection, Beth went on to obtain a PgDip in Teaching Bilingual Learners and an MA in Language Education. Following this she worked as a consultant for numerous councils before setting up EAL Hub Ltd to fill a gap in the market. Beth felt that there was a lack of high quality EAL/Literacy boosting resources available to schools which focused on making lessons, topics and texts more accessible to EAL learners, enabling them to remain in class as much as possible.
