Innovative teacher training, webinars, conferences and CPD

CPD: Media literacy resources for secondary pupils with SEND
Thursday 13th July, 4:15pm - 5pm, free
Along with our sister programme, NewsWise, and funded by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, we have adapted and produced resources to provide a suite of cross-curricular media literacy resources for secondary SEND students.

We will be holding a CPD session with tips for using the resources and teaching news and critical literacy on Thursday 13 July 4:15pm - 5pm. Open to all teachers working with secondary SEND students.
Initial teacher training
We deliver a popular 40 minute webinar for English, History and Citizenship trainee teachers on critical literacy and teaching news. During the webinar we model our Fake or for real workshop and equip participants with skills, resources and ideas to teach the session with their practice schools. Contact us if you would like to book a session.
Bespoke training
On request we can organise tailored news, journalism and critical literacy training for a range of educators and to support specific subjects or initiatives. We recently ran a CPD session for a teaching department who wanted to run a news day in their school. Contact us if you would like to discuss arranging bespoke training for your organisation.
Resources to support students
We offer a range of resources to support and embed news and media literacy across the secondary curriculum, including advice, tips and downloadable material.
The CPD session helped us to deliver a successful newspaper day that students really enjoyed.
after a bespoke CPD webinar
A brilliant morning. This is exactly what a 21st Century PGCE should be delivering. The trainees found it really useful for their classroom practice and for extending their thinking on media literacy.
