NPQ for Leading Literacy


Working in conjunction with UCL, this NPQ is facilitated locally by experienced cross-phase practitioners.

The NPQLL will support you to deepen your knowledge of Leading Literacy within a collaborative and open learning environment whilst gaining confidence and developing skills in running literacy improvement strategies and supporting colleagues who want to develop their pupils’ reading.

This course covers how to support colleagues to develop all pupils’:

• word reading

• reading comprehension

• writing skills

You’ll also learn how to:

• contribute to effective professional development linked to teaching, curriculum and assessment across the school

• design and implement literacy improvement strategies
