The Power of Reading is a school development project which engages teachers and children in the literacy curriculum through using high quality books and proven teaching approaches. The project offers multi-layered professional development drawing on CLPE’s highly regarded classroom-based research and experience of working with teachers. It combines an introduction to outstanding books for teachers and children with an approach to teaching the English curriculum that is creative, engaging and develops a love of literacy. This successful project is entering its 12th year and has worked nationally with over 3000 schools and 4500 teachers in 50 Local Authorities.

The Power of Reading training package includes:
A launch conference (for headteachers (am only) and project teachers (whole day).
2 full day insets
A final conference in the summer term (for headteachers and project teachers (whole day)).
Two packs of books per project teacher
