This course helps teachers develop strategies to take their Key Stage 2 pupils beyond scaffolded writing, building confidence and self-assessment skills, and providing a structure for pupils to tackle writing challenges across different text types.

The course consists of a full day of training on 22 October and a follow-up twilight session on 11 February (3pm to 5pm) giving participants the opportunity to feed back on their experience and plan next steps.

  • The course costs £350 for the first participant, then £250 for each colleague
  • We invite a head or senior leader from each school to attend the first session free of charge
  • Follow up support visits to your school are also available at an additional cost of £350

Attendance includes one year's membership of the National Literacy Trust*, giving all teachers in your school access to a range of inspiring teaching resources, school improvement tools, training and CPD.
