For anyone interested, I have several courses coming up that are open to all. They are all at Heath Educational Books in Sutton. The links will take you to information and booking details. The fee to attend each course is £99, including refreshments.

Know your authors on 5 June 2013 aims to give literacy and library coordinators, teachers and other key stage 1 and 2 staff greater awareness of high quality children’s books and authors and ideas for using them to inspire reading enjoyment across the curriculum.

Promoting reading through the secondary library on 11 June 2013 is a course for secondary school librarians and assistants. We will explore successful methods for encouraging reading and raising the profile of the library.

Making reading attractive to pupils with SEN at KS2 and KS3 on 18 June 2013 is for literacy coordinators, SENCOs, teachers, librarians and support staff. We will identify ways to promote reading to pupils with reading difficulties and examine lots of reading resources.

Supporting reading through the primary library on 1 October 2013 is all about practical and cost-effective strategies for fostering reading skills and enjoyment and improving the library. It is designed for anyone with responsibility for the library.
