We are pleased to be working alongside Oasis Innovation Teaching School Alliance to present a series of free of charge reading and writing webinars.

Please view the table below for the content of the webinars, along with the dates and times of the sessions, and who these sessions will be relevant for. We recommend this free of charge CPD for all trainees, NQTs and Early Career teachers along with those who simply wish to expand their knowledge in the crucial, fundamental field of reading.

These sessions are particularly relevant during a time where schools are facing disruption and periods of students learning at home, in addressing gaps in learning and helping boost parental engagement and promoting important remote learning strategies.
