Developing the literacy skills of secondary age students, across a range of different subjects, is a common challenge for secondary schools.

New EEF guidance presents 7 evidence informed recommendations for school leaders, emphasising the importance of disciplinary literacy.


Recommendation 1 – Prioritise disciplinary literacy’ across the curriculum

Recommendation 2 – Provide targeted vocabulary instruction in every subject

Recommendation 3 – Develop students’ ability to read complex academic texts

Recommendation 4 – Break down complex writing tasks

Recommendation 5 – Combine writing instruction with reading in every subject

Recommendation 6 – Provide opportunities for structured talk

Recommendation 7 – Provide high quality interventions for struggling students

Our 3‑day training course explores the guidance with a view to providing strategic and practical approaches to support the implementation of these recommendations.

The training will be most beneficial for school leaders, heads of subjects and literacy co-ordinators.
