Programme Overview

‘Young people who leave school without good literacy skills are held back at every stage of life. Their outcomes are poorer on almost every measure, from health and wellbeing, to employment and finance. ‘ Sir Kevan Collins, Chief Executive of the Education Endowment Foundation

Reading, writing, speaking and listening, are at the heart of every subject in secondary school. The Guidance Report for ‘Improving Literacy in Secondary Schools’ was published on 5th July 2019. This 3 day course will explore the recommendations found within this report . Delegates will uncover the multi faceted challenge that ‘Literacy’ poses with an emphasis on reading, vocabulary, developing independent writers and the importance of oracy and spoken language.

The report challenges the idea that improving literacy in secondary school should just be the job of English teachers. Instead, it argues for disciplinary literacy as an approach to improving literacy across the curriculum. It recognises that literacy skills are both general and subject specific, emphasising the value of supporting teachers in every subject to teach students how to read, write and communicate effectively in their subjects.

Outcomes:

✓ Increased knowledge of the evidence to improve literacy across all subject areas.

✓ Tools to support professional development of colleagues at school.

✓ Support with identification of the biggest literacy ‘problem’ within your school to enable action planning and preparation for implementation.
