EAL Success Roadshow 2020 (Manchester)


Unfortunately, due to government guidance to avoid unnecessary public gatherings based on the COVID-19 virus and current circumstances in UK schools, we have made a decision to postpone the EAL Success conference scheduled to be held in Manchester on the 25th March.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and if there’s any other way in which we can help with your planning to support pupils with EAL, especially associated with school closure, please feel free to contact us!
