English as an Additional Language (EAL) Webinar Series Webinar #6 - EAL Learners, Direct Provision and the International Protection Accommodation System

 

This webinar is a collaboration between Kilkenny Education Centre, Clare Education Centre, Laois Education Centre, Limerick Education Centre and the English Language Support Teachers' Association of Ireland (ELSTA).

Do you know what your EAL students and families experience in Direct Provision/the International Protection Accommodation System? This webinar will enhance your ability to have a better understanding of the context and backgrounds of these learners. This webinar will spotlight the context in which many EAL learners and their families find themselves while their application for International Protection is being considered. Bernard, the facilitator, will outline how the system operates, common misconceptions about the system and the upcoming changes to the system. You will gain further insights into life for families in the International Protection Accommodation System. Bernard will also deal with life of school-goers and their families from an EAL perspective.

When you complete this webinar you will;

  • Have a better understanding of how the Direct Provision/International Protection Accommodation System works and how it is changing,
  • Know where to find further information on the impact of learners’ family histories on learners, and
  • Have a wider vocabulary and greater understanding to accurately describe a learner’s context in terms of EAL.

You will be encouraged to ask questions/clarify aspects of the webinar content throughout the webinar.
