Join a free event held by Leeds City Council and Leeds Beckett University launching a tool for working in an intercultural and multilingual context
This mini-conference, taking place on 6 December 17:00-20:00 at The Rose Bowl, Leeds city centre, is held in partnership with Leeds City Council, Leeds Beckett University and education experts from across Europe. Practitioners will share the pioneering work of the Edina project, which has developed a tool for working in an intercultural and multilingual context. Join other education professionals to learn about the Edina educational resources, supported by research evidence from Leeds and beyond.
Even for the most dedicated education professionals, it can be hard to know where to look for support and resources tailored to teachers’ needs in providing the best possible welcome and educational experience to pupils who are newcomers to the area, the country and the language of instruction.
Schools are at the forefront of intercultural innovation. Governments may enact policies reflecting what they see as national values and introduce short-term schemes when circumstances threaten the smooth running of the economy but when it comes to responding to the day-to-day realities of multi-cultural Britain, including the human effects of global crises, schools innovate through necessity.
