About this course

As well as covering the basics, we will be looking at the importance of providing a wide range of reading and stimulus materials, and a wide range of approaches to teaching literacy. 

Throughout the course, we will be looking at examples of individual needs and exploring how learners can apply their skills in relevant contexts, as part of their life skills, communication skills and independent development.

Course objectives:

  • Develop confidence in teaching literacy to learners with a range of additional needs 
  • Develop a toolkit of active ideas and games to make literacy exciting
  • Consider the use of poetry and games to develop confidence and vocabulary
  • Understand the hierarchy of, and prerequisites to, learning
  • Ensure learning is accessible, diverse and inclusive
  • Create dynamic, challenging and exciting schemes of work


This course is suitable for those teaching in both mainstream and special schools.
