Primary training

Owing to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, delivery of face-to-face training has been postponed. However, we also offer a range of online training sessions, led by our literacy consultants. Find out more about each session below.

Online training

All sessions are delivered by a National Literacy Trust consultant. We welcome requests from groups of schools. Many of the schools that we work with choose to collaborate with other schools either in their Trust, or local area to reduce training costs and optimise shared learning opportunities.

We recommend a group size of up to 12 participants per session, in order to maximise the opportunity for interaction and discussion. However, larger groups can be accommodated. All prices quoted refer to a group rate.
