Build respectful relationships & create a supportive learning environment that promotes engagement & pathways to success

Are your teaching practices embracing culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) learners? Creating a learning environment where CALD learners can thrive is more than just acknowledging diversity - it needs a foundation of inclusive practices, understanding of cultural nuances and providing targeted support to overcome linguistic and cultural barriers.

Join Feren Yen for this webinar, "Supporting CALD Learners," to explore how supporting CALD learners might look like in your classroom. This session will delve into what CALD means, how to identify CALD students, and the unique barriers they face. Learn how to build respectful relationships and create a supportive learning environment that promotes engagement and pathways to success.

Key topics include the foundations of CALD, overcoming common challenges, and implementing reasonable adjustments to support learners effectively. You’ll gain insights into cultural theory, cross-cultural communication, and practical strategies to enhance your teaching practice.

Ideal for trainers, assessors, team leaders, program coordinators, and supervisors, this workshop will equip you with the knowledge and skills to better support CALD learners, fostering a more inclusive and effective educational environment. Join us and transform your approach to teaching, ensuring all students have the opportunity to thrive.
