We offer face to face courses (when coronavirus restrictions relax sufficiently to allow groups to congregate). In addition we offer online courses. See our courses page for more information about both types of course. During the current lockdown we are offering online courses for anyone who was booked for a face to face course. The choice is yours – if you prefer to wait for the time when we are able to resume face to face courses that is your prerogative.

When choosing a course to apply for from the selection below, please choose the location nearest to you – even for online courses. Our aim is that you should be trained by the trainer who is nearest to you. This is best for all concerned, for instance it means that if and when your school wants to discuss any literacy-related issues or perhaps more training, they can interact with the same person who trained you.

For information about any particular course, please use the ‘email the trainer’ link for that course to contact the trainer who is running it.
