Literacy for Learning

Literacy for Life

Literacy for Learning helps students develop the literacy skills they need to do well at school and in their future lives.

We work with teachers and literacy leaders to develop a range of approaches to support reading, writing, speaking and listening. Our online training sessions led by literacy consultants are available to all schools nationwide. We also work more closely with schools participating in the programme, who receive training, consultancy and resources, working collaboratively to identify priorities and embed sustainable approaches school-wide.

Online training sessions

Our online training sessions for teachers led by our literacy consultants are available for a small fee to all schools, whether or not they participate in the Literacy for Learning programme.

Participating schools

If you have any questions or need any assistance regarding your participation in Literacy for Learning please email the programme manager.

Literacy in secondary schools

Research and policy guidance shows that secondary schools need to prioritise disciplinary literacy, embedding reading, writing, speaking and listening in every subject, to ensure no student is left behind.
