Give your pupils the communication skills they need to foster their love of reading and writing.

About this English CPD course

Teaching English in a primary school really does offer you the chance to influence children’s lives and equip your pupils with the knowledge and skills that give them the power to communicate.

As a teacher, you can share children's excitement as they read and listen - and when they see the impact their own words can have on others.

In this short continuing professional development course, Janet Davies of London’s Institute of Education will be exploring key areas of the English national curriculum. Teaming up with teachers in two London primary schools, Janet has used real lessons to present you with practical pointers and resources to improve your English teaching.

As with all TES Institute CPD courses for teachers, the most important part will be your contribution. At every stage, Janet will be asking you to share your thoughts, ideas and experiences from the classroom – and then to discuss them with other teachers on the course.
