We are sharing some photos from our very successful Global Literacy Conference with Michael Rosen held in Brockenhurst last term. Can you see yourself!

It was easily the best training course/conference I’ve ever been on including whilst I was at uni and since teaching! We were made to feel really welcomed and valued plus every event we attended was excellent. It was a real privilege to listen to Michael Rosen too – what an inspiring person!

Here is a flavour of some opportunities available for you and a printable summary of our training and resources:

The questioning skills and listening skills of the children will be improved.  My own teaching is hopefully going to be more ‘guide on the side’ and less ‘sage on the stage’
