This programme will explore the recommendations from the EEF secondary Literacy Guidance Reports and how they can be successfully implemented across a school.

Who is it aimed at?

Secondary school colleagues who have a responsibility for literacy either whole-school or on a smaller scale.

What will be covered?

  • Current literacy challenges faced by pupils and teachers in secondary schools.
  • Disciplinary literacy and how to develop literacy strategies that are subject specific.
  • How we learn to read and where gaps can occur for secondary pupils.
  • How we can support pupils in secondary schools to improve their writing.
  • The role of structured talk in the secondary classroom.
  • How to plan for effective literacy implementation.

What will you know/​be able to do by the end of the programme?

  • Understand what research evidence suggests is the most effective approach for diagnosing literacy issues in your context.
  • Gain knowledge of a range of possible strategies for tackling these issues all underpinned by research evidence.
  • Review and evaluate existing approaches to literacy.
  • Produce a coherent and workable plan for developing literacy teaching in your context.

What will be the potential impact on teachers and pupils as a result of this training?

  • Teachers and leaders in your school will have a better understanding of why literacy is crucial to every subject. Alongside this, teachers and leaders will understand the specific literacy challenges encountered by your pupils and what can be done to overcome these issues.
  • Teachers will be able to provide targeted literacy support that works within their subject rather than viewing literacy as an unwelcome bolt-on’ to their curriculum.
  • Teachers and school leaders will be armed with practical strategies to use in the classroom.
