Raising Attainment in Literacy

On-Line Training Opportunities for 2023/2024

As you begin to look at your School’s Improvement Plan for the next academic session, you will see the literacy trainings that are on offer which may be able to support you in this task.  Although people may sign up for trainings out of personal interest, it is often best to plan for trainings strategically within a whole school approach.

You will be able to find the dates and sign into these trainings through the Highland Council CPD calendar which is on the Schools’ Hub.
