Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council

description of organisation

The EAL (English as Additional Language) team forms part of Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council. The EAL team aims to support EAL children in English language acquisition. Its target groups are the Ethnic minority children who do not speak English as a first language. Many of these children do not speak English and are facing difficulty of Learning English through the process of immersion. In addition they have the added burden of understanding subjects taught under the National Curriculum. The EAL team assists and supports these children in English Language acquisition.
Merthyr Tydfil has regularly hosted EVS volunteers since 2005 and the volunteers have increasingly become a valuable part of the team and assisting in Primary and Secondary schools.
Having already hosted EVS volunteers, we do feel it is of benefit to the local community and the EAL team to do so. The volunteers brings new ideas, skills and experiences; provide a different perspective to local and global issues; and help to create an atmosphere of diversity.
