More info

Over nine modules, participants will develop a deep understanding of what the research says makes for effective teaching of disciplinary (subject-specific) literacy, and apply this in their schools. Participants will be given a wealth of strategies for vocabulary instruction, reading and writing in every subject discipline.

Outcomes of the programme:

  • Evaluate current practice in light of the evidence
  • Explore evidence-based reading and writing strategies
  • Enhance assessment and intervention as part of a whole-school focus on literacy
  • Mobilise a whole-school approach to disciplinary literacy.

Who is it for?

This programme is aimed at senior leaders of curriculum, subject leads and literacy coordinators.
