Professional Development

Develop your skills through innovative best practice and the latest research with our training courses and events, designed to help you take action to improve literacy outcomes.

Our conferences

"There is no significant literacy development in the classroom without substantial professional development in the staffroom."

Stephen Tierney (2020) Read All About It: Why reading is key to GCSE success, GL Assessment

Why choose us for CPD?

  • Our courses are fully aligned with the DfE standards for teachers' professional development.
  • Our training offers teachers and literacy leaders a chance to immerse themselves in enquiry, questioning and experimentation as well as providing innovative strategies and practical ideas to support literacy.
  • We offer both scheduled live online events, and group or whole-school training on request.
  • Guidance from the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) shows that professional development should be a priority for pupil premium spending - our courses focus on areas that most often create barriers for disadvantaged students.

"Thanks for an informative day - I'm going away with inspiration for my own practice and whole-school CPD."
