Getting learners 'secondary-ready':
Closing the Covid literacy gap

Join our two-part evidence based webinar series examining the impact of Covid on literacy levels, and how secondary staff can anticipate and meet the needs of new Year 7s who just aren’t ‘secondary-ready’ yet. 28th June & 7th July 2021

Driving Inclusion programmes

Bookings are now open for our two new Driving Inclusion programmes!

We believe that the key to inclusive education is in the hands of the school’s workforce. Running over six-weeks and hosted on our new online learning hub, the Driving Inclusion programmes will support both the SENCo and the ‘literacy lead’ in your school to promote a culture of inclusion and improve reading, writing and communication skills in all learners.

Summer 2021 Webinars

Our summer-term webinars will run from May to July, and are designed to fit flexibly into a teacher’s work day. All of our webinars are hosted on Zoom and cost £30 per person. If you have any questions prior to booking please email programmes@driveryouthtrust.com.
