The CLPE is an independent UK charity with a global reputation for the quality of our research into literacy and teaching. Our work promotes high standards in the teaching of literacy. We particularly emphasise the importance of books and literature in enabling children to become confident, happy and enthusiastic readers and writers, with all the benefits this brings.
This 6 day programme develops the professional knowledge and expertise in the leadership, management and teaching and learning of literacy. It offers English Subject Leaders a balance between relevant theory and models of good practice including input from outside speakers.
Our courses for 2015-2016 are now open for booking. Professional development includes Inspiring Writing, Reading for Pleasure and Achieving Excellence in the Early Years.

Thanks to the many schools who got involved in the Shadowing Scheme for our annual Poetry Award. Congratulations to those who won the opportunity to perform at the Poetry Show at the National Theatre.
Our much-loved Core Book List is now available as a FREE online resource. Nearly 2500 teachers, librarians and parents have registered to find out about the carefully chosen, comprehensive selection of hundreds of high quality texts for children from ages 3 -11. Don't miss out.
Our Power of Reading Project gives us a unique perspective on the successful teaching of reading in primary schools. We have produced a free, practical booklet sharing the things that teachers told us need to be considered and developed if schools are to be successful in promoting a love of reading.
Narrative and explanatory text are cleverly combined to create a very informative non-fiction picture book.
