Transforming your school reading culture (TSRC) 

5 session series over the academic year.

The TSRC programme is underpinned by research; throughout the programme there are articles/books for participants to read as well as references to research built into the session plans. This research is split into two strands: reading for pleasure and leadership development/change management theory, there will be gaps tasks in between the sessions and you will receive a certificate once the course is completed.

The Core sessions are run by Ilsham English Hub 12.30 – 3pm run on zoom (you need to attend all the sessions): 

Core Session 1: Reading for Pleasure: a whole school culture: 11th October
Core Session 2: Creating whole school change: 22nd November
Core Session 3: Creating a reading school: structural changes: 17th January
Core Session 4: Creating a reading school: behavioural changes: 13th March

This group is for English leaders and is looking at developing a whole school reading community and culture and is free to access.  This will be facilitated by Danni Cooke (hub lead) and Carly Watson (hub team).

You will need to sign up to attend all 5 core sessions to be part of this support group and then you are also welcome to attend the optional after school workshops (further details to follow next academic year) which I am sure you will find very valuable as well.
