You don't have to have formal EAL qualifications to effectively begin teaching EAL/D learners....read the EAL/D resource described below. This has been written for mainstream teachers...

The EAL/D resource on the Australian Curriculum site now has the EAL/D annotations for four learning areas: English, Maths, Science and History. These are excellent. They highlight the linguistic and cultural challenges that EAL/D learners may encounter. Each content statement in all four Learning Areas has been annotated. The annotations also provide pedagogical advice for each content statement based on these challenges.
