CourseEnglish CPD Programme - 6 Workshops
Led byNoctua SLE's
DetailsResearch points to a vocabulary gap having a long-lasting impact on children’s education and later life prospects while the demands of the curriculum require teachers to have a bank of knowledge and strategies to call on to challenge and support every group in school. OFSTED are tasked with ensuring schools have this support in place.
Noctua’s English CPD programme this year is full of thoughtful and practical sessions to support your staff across the breadth of the English curriculum. Participants who attend the training will be given up-to-date knowledge on how to tackle these issues and a range of proven ideas for implementing in the classroom.

Session 1 - Closing the word gap: why vocabulary is important & practical strategies for closing the vocabulary gap
Session 2 - What every teacher needs to know about reading
Session 3 - Practical strategies for whole class reading
Session 4 - Creative ideas for teaching English
Session 5 - Spelling and grammar: subject knowledge and strategies
