to get every child in Leicester reading!
CPD Programme

Each year a substantial programme of training and development is developed by WIT to support the teaching and learning of reading. This programme includes one-off training events, networks and supported ‘task and finish’ groups.

The priorities for each year’s CPD programme are set by a WIT CPD Committee who use their strategic over-sight to review recent WIT evaluations, schools grant applications and the views and needs identified by Reading Champions.

Who is it for?

This year’s programme has been developed with the needs of teachers, teaching assistants, leaders, governors and volunteers in mind.

What are the costs to school?

Places are available to Maintained Leicester schools without charge, subject to places being available. For any other school that would like to attend please call us on 0116 299 5978.

Please note schools are expected to fund their own cover arrangements as required to release staff to attend.

NB Schools may be charged if they do not notify WIT of their cancellation within the notice period outlined within the CPD Programme.
