Training programme – Evidence-informed approaches to improving literacy

10:00–15:00 on 20 March 2019

Course overview

Currently, there is a lack of practical ideas about how teachers can best support students who arrive at secondary school with low literacy levels.

This will be a three day programme aimed at anybody with a literacy responsibility including secondary literacy leaders, subject leaders and classroom teachers. The training will explore approaches to reading, writing and vocabulary development through the lens of robust research evidence. There will be a particular focus on methods to use with secondary students who currently struggle to access the literacy demands of the key stage three and four curriculum.

The training will include practical and time efficient strategies that can be taken away and immediately applied in your setting.
