About this course

Raising Attainment in Writing is a one-day CPD course that's packed full of games and approaches that will help children generate ideas for writing and improve their vocabulary.

The training draws on the importance of talk and in the writing process. It is underpinned by the latest cutting-edge theory and research and features dozens of collaborative activities to aid language acquisition and retention, not only in English, but across the curriculum.
