Talk for Writing Training and Consultancy

Talk for Writing - Talk for Reading - Talk for Grammar - Talk for the Wider Curriculum

When working with schools, Jamie always liaises with senior leaders to design a training package that raises standards both in English and across the curriculum, whilst also generating increased confidence in and enjoyment of reading and writing.  Not only will the training and support provide schools with the skills and knowledge to embed the key principles and practices, it will also ensure that the school is, by the end of the project, in a position to maintain and develop the approach themselves. This is fundamental to sustainable improvement.
