Course Outline

Most practitioners in the UK now work within complex communities and increasingly large numbers of children are bilingual. Teachers’ daily work is with children who speak more than one language but their curriculum and assessment frameworks are monolingual and in English. This course will explore bilingual children’s use of first languages and learning of a new language in the early years. To give children the best chance of success, strategies will be suggested for fostering children’s bilingualism and supporting and assessing the learning of a new language, creating environments where multilingualism is a positive resource.

By the end of the course you will:

  • Make links with current policy guidance and discuss how to put this into practice with multilingual children and their families;
  • Develop strategies for supporting all children’s early language and communication, where English may be an additional language;
  • Understand the potential benefits of supporting early bilingualism;
  • Develop an understanding of assessment and the stages of early bilingual learning.
