How it works
Phase 1 — Strategy Consultation
We’ll meet your leadership team, review your literacy data and learn more about your reading culture and the interventions you’ve been using.
From this, we’ll give you a report with practical recommendations to help you cut down unnecessary use of resources, revise your school screening systems and increase your impact on students.
Phase 2 — Assessment Training
Reliable assessment is the key to effective reading intervention. Over 12 hours, we’ll train up to six of your staff how to identify each student’s needs and confidently match them to appropriate interventions.
Phase 3 — Implementation
We’ll coach the staff who completed Phase 2 over 18 hours to deliver the Thinking Reading programme. They’ll learn how to conduct diagnostic assessments, plan lessons, set up the classroom, organise timetables and report to staff and parents.
We’ll follow up this training with additional coaching sessions and monitoring meetings with your team leaders. After a few months, we’ll observe your intervention team teaching and give feedback.
Phase 4 — Partnership
Welcome to partnership! When you’ve completed Phase 3, we’ll begin a three-year CPD partnership, where you’ll share students’ progress with us at regular intervals, and we’ll help you solve learning problems as they arise. The partnership includes training for up to two new staff members, plus advanced training for team leaders, certification for your staff and accreditation for your school.
