Our Approach

Our highly experienced primary and secondary English specialists will listen and work with you to analyse your needs, explore solutions together and jointly plan the next steps to improvement. We won’t tell you what to do or build a dependency culture. We support improvement within English and also offer expertise in embedding literacy across the curriculum in order achieve a rapid impact on pupil learning. We know what works and we offer innovative approaches and solutions.

Literacy across the curriculum

'The teaching of Literacy in every classroom has been transformed by the exceptional quality of the CPD delivered by the Improve English Advisor. She has inspired each and every one of us to take responsibility for the teaching of good literacy skills in every lesson.'

Vice Principal, Secondary Academy, Wolverhampton

Subject Leader Networks

'Working alongside colleagues from different local authorities with a range of experiences and expertise has enabled SL’s to be more outward looking, reflecting on their own practice. Having access to up to date developments has given SL’s greater confidence in leading subject improvements. The opportunity to not only share good practice but have quality time for professional debate has been invaluable’.
