About GROW@KS3 

  • Audience is low literacy attaining Y7 students (=/< NCL3)
  • Students are taught individually or in groups up to 3
  • Lessons take place a minimum of 3 times each week & last 30-45 mins
  • Lessons are taught by specially trained GROW@KS3practitioners who may be teachers, librarians or HLTAs
  • A 10 week initial period is suggested; 20 weeks is max.
  • The GOAL – independent & highly motivated learners whose literacy improves every time they read and write!
 

What you will learn

The Initial Professional Development (IPD) three-day course for GROW@KS3 includes training on:

  • literacy assessment
  • reading and comprehension
  • working on words
  • talk for writing and guided writing

The course is accredited by the Institute of Education and will be delivered at Barlow Hall Primary School for the Manchester area. A high level of pedagogical skill on the part of practitioners is assumed during the professional development in order that students who may have become passive or negative are taught successfully. Schools benefit considerably from having two people undertake the course, so a discount for second participants from the same school is available.

 

Who is it for?

Teachers and TAs involved in teaching literacy groups in Year 7 and above.
