Literacy for Learning is the National Literacy Trust’s secondary school improvement programme. It provides training courses for literacy leaders and teachers on 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
  • Developing disciplinary writing within the curriculum

Courses can be booked as an online scheduled ticketed course or as a group or whole-school INSET training session. Whole school sessions are available online or face-to-face and take place on a mutually agreed date.

Cost: Starting from £60 for a single booking for an online scheduled course. Online group sessions start from £800. Costs for face-to-face sessions available on request.
