Post Primary Introduction
One of the principal aspects of the work of IILT is the provision of support to primary and post-primary schools where non-English speaking non-national pupils have been enrolled.
This support programme has been in existence since 2000 and is delivered through in-service seminars in centres around the country. All in-service days include induction for principals and language support teachers from schools experiencing the arrival of non-English speaking pupils for the first time, and on-going in-service training for those teachers who continue in language support. In addition, a range of materials is distributed for both teachers and pupils.
This programme has proven extremely popular with teachers, with attendance figures doubling year on year and 98% percent of participants evaluating seminars as good/excellent.
There is no charge for seminars.
