What's on offer?


Due to the COVID19 pandemic Literacy Focus has gone on-line! 

Since March 2020 I have adapted consultancy and training work so that it can be successful on-line. I use Zoom or Teams, depending on what suits you, and can do everything that I would normally do face-to-face except teach a class!  All feedback about working on-line has been exceptionally positive, in fact some Heads have said that they find meetings smarter and more purposeful on-line than in person.

On-line I have trained all group sizes from 5 to 65, tailoring the training according to whether it is with participants socially distanced in one room, spread between rooms in a school, individuals at home or a mixture of all three.  Schools have been really satisfied with this as an alternative to face-to-face training; some have even picked up some ideas for their own on-line practice.

The following are suggestions of aspects that you may require training, advice or support in implementing.  All packages are bespoke.
