Practitioners have a responsibility to support bilingual children’s language development. Children who speak two languages should be supported and able to access the same opportunities as their peers, however, this can be difficult if neither language spoken is English. A child who has little to no English-speaking skills can struggle to communicate, creating barriers to supporting the child.

This course will help learners to understand the issues faced by bilingual children, the advantages of bilingualism, and the myths. It will also provide techniques for working with bilingual children.

The learning objectives for this course are as follows:

  1. To increase awareness and understanding of the bilingual child
  2. To raise the profile of bilingual children and the curriculum
  3. To provide an opportunity to develop strategies for supporting the bilingual child

This course ensures your practice is in line with the requirements of the Childcare Act 2006 (the Act), as amended by the Children and Families Act 2014. It will also support your continuous professional development and enable you to keep well informed and up-to-date with current practice.

Should you wish to discuss your training needs based on the children in your care, please call 0800 774 787.
