I’ve led English for 9 years and I’ve still learnt something new in each session. The best course I’ve ever been on
Progress and Achievement in Reading training participant
CLPE training has had a transformational effect on the engagement of our children in reading and writing.
Children’s writing has developed immensely and progress has accelerated. Our children now love reading and approach writing bursting with ideas and confidence.
