Remote Training

Let me help your school excel

What is remote training and what’s included?

The ‘Boom’ in remote training has certainly enhanced access to high quality training and development material.

In this section, you can browse a selection of the pre-recorded training I offer. Each video guides participants through key subject knowledge and offers practical advice and guidance. This is supplemented by ‘sign-posts’ to other useful content and resources.

Simply browse the videos and complete the form at the bottom to place your order.

What’s included in the remote training videos?

  • Due to my role, I am able to break down complex material and make it meaningful for practitioners.
  • In each video, delegates receive guidance, subject knowledge, practical suggestions and clarity about the content. More importantly, they will have the confidence to take the learning and apply it in their own contexts.
  • The videos are created for practitioners working in schools or educational settings.
  • Content is presented clearly through a ‘slides’ structure and delegates are given tasks and reflection points to help them digest and understand the content.
  • Where applicable, accompanying material will be emailed with the link to the recorded content.

What do people think about The Literacy Advisor?

I thought this session was well thought out, building in complexity well and made excellent wider links for me to follow afterwards. I have just purchased two books off the back of this! Thanks so much.

His training gave staff the confidence to teach high quality engaging phonic lessons which has resulted in soaring phonics attainment.
