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."
