Literacy for Learning is a programme of live, online training courses for school leaders covering all aspects of literacy within the secondary curriculum.
The programme is divided into four Literacy Pathways, each containing a sequence of related training courses that build skills and understanding in a specific area of literacy. The courses in a pathway can be purchased individually or as a complete series.
The Literacy Pathways cover:
- Introduction to disciplinary literacy
- Developing disciplinary literacy within subject areas
- Developing reading within the curriculum
- Improving writing in secondary subjects
Courses can be booked as a scheduled ticketed course (see the NLT website for current dates and times) or as a group or whole-school INSET training session (available online or face-to-face).
Cost: Starting from £60 for a single ticket. Group sessions available on request.
