Power of Reading

The Power of Reading and Power of Reading in the Early Years from CLPE are proven to raise children's literacy achievement. Established for thirteen years, over 5000 teachers have taken part in the projects which enhance teachers’ knowledge of high quality literature and develop their ability to use it creatively in the classroom.

This 4 day course includes:

  • 4 whole day INSET sessions designed to develop teachers’ subject knowledge and ability to implement the programme immediately in their classrooms
  • Practical and evidence based training to enhance knowledge of the approaches proven to raise children’s engagement and attainment in reading and writing
  • An additional free place for a senior leader on the first and last days to support whole school engagement
  • A whole school subscription to the resource-packed website with access to nearly 200 teaching sequences and 1000 examples of good practice, supporting class teaching and CPD from EYFS up to KS2
  • 20 books for each teacher on the course, carefully chosen to increase knowledge of high quality literature to use in their classroom and develop their own responses as readers
  • Gap tasks designed to support the successful implementation of the programme including how to improve the literacy environment
