St Matthews Research School Training / CPD

Raising Writing Standards in Years 4 and 5 is an innovative and sharply-focused programme developed and presented by Martin Galway whose writing training is never less than inspirational. 

It is designed to support writers in Years 4 and 5 to meet age-related expectations in word and phrase choice, sentence structure and overall composition.  It is accompanied by three teaching sequences and twenty detailed lessons.  Two training mornings and a mid-programme support webinar will show you how to develop writers with stamina, confidence and fluidity.

If you are worried about writing standards in your school, we could not recommend this more highly. 

The programme begins on 4th February 2022.  Tickets are £175 per delegate but BEP members can access this training for 20% off the full price – £140
