Code: 19NQT/039P Effective planning for mathematics to secure progress in Key Stage 2

This course focuses on getting the planning right to help pupils to make good progress in maths.

We will begin from the National Curriculum end of year expectations and ensure course participants have the knowledge and skills to break these down and plan effectively from them. HfL’s ESSENTIALmaths materials will be used to exemplify sequences of learning.

The Teaching Standards which NQTs aim to meet of ‘demonstrating good subject and curriculum knowledge’ and ‘planning and teaching well-structured lessons’ will be well supported by attending this training.

The day will also include take-away ideas, activities and resources which can be tried straight away in the classroom. This course is most suitable to NQTs and those teachers early in their career.


This course would also suit overseas trained teachers, those returning to teaching or moving key stage.

Code: 19ENG/028P Write Away Together

Looking for an effective intervention to improve writing, which relies upon a more robust partnership approach between teacher and TA and between TA and pupils?

Write Away Together is a Fischer Family Trust guided-writing intervention programme, focused on feedback and improvement. It can be applicable to all pupils, or used as a one-to-one intervention, targeting pupils who need more intense structured support.

One of the top seven strategies identified by the Sutton Trust, to raise attainment of disadvantaged and vulnerable learners, includes a focus on the pupil’s ability to self-manage their own learning.

A key feature of the intervention focuses on how to change pupils’ writing behaviour so that the skills of proof-reading and editing become increasingly embedded. The course is intended for a TA to attend, along with their SENCO or lead teacher. A range of practical activities will be explored, which can be used with pupils across the primary phase.
