Talk for Writing training
– Online or in school

Our training can take place either as an interactive online workshop or as an Inset training day in school. Talk for Writing works best as a whole-school approach. To develop and embed any approach effectively, schools should commit to a sequence of training – as outlined in the training packages below. One day of training will rarely lead to transformational change if it is not followed up with subsequent support.
