Better Bilingual

Better Bilingual comprises a dedicated team of proactive and client-focused education consultants and teachers, with a wealth of experience in supporting school improvement. We specialise in enhancing educational provision for pupils from the rich diversity of minority ethnic backgrounds, many of whom have English as an Additional Language (EAL).

Our Vision:
Better Bilingual’s vision is an educational ethos which harnesses linguistic and cultural diversity to empower all our children and young people to reach their academic potential.

Our Values:
Equity Diversity Inclusion
Inclusivity Collaboration Social justice

Our Mission:
Better Bilingual’s mission is to improve academic outcomes in multilingual classrooms through ‘language aware’ teaching. We work with educational settings so they understand both the benefits of being multilingual and how to develop the academic English for success.

Successfully collaborating with schools and partners since October 2016, our ongoing mission is to improve educational provision in the diverse, multilingual classroom through school consultancy, coaching and training, including ITE and CPD, as well as direct pupil teaching, assessments and action planning.

We value parents, carers and communities from diverse ethnic and linguistic heritages as key partners in the education process and invite expressions of interest in collaborative work on anti-racist or EAL-related school projects. Please send initial ideas to our Director:

Our Director / Co-Founder, Catherine Brennan, has published a number of articles/resources for teachers and school leaders on EAL and multilingual classrooms, including:
