Word Aware: Training for trainers

Word Aware Training for Trainers ***Cost of training per delegate: £400

Outline

This is a 2 day (11th & 12th July 2019) course to become an accredited Word Aware trainer and will be run by Stephen Parsons & Anna Branagan. Applicants for this course must have attended the Word Aware Introduction course and have a copy of either Word Aware 1 (primary) or Word Aware 2 (early years) book that they can bring to the course. The WA training for trainers course equips participants to deliver training in both early years and primary.

Applicants should be a specialist teacher, teacher, SENCO, Speech and Language Therapist or Educational Psychologist. They also need to be a confident and competent trainer who routinely delivers training. Please note: This is an assessed course and participants need to meet quality standards in order to be accredited.

Description

The National Curriculum states: ‘Pupils’ acquisition and command of vocabulary are key to their learning and progress across the whole curriculum. Teachers should therefore develop vocabulary actively, building systematically on pupils’ current knowledge.’ This course guides participants through that systematic approach. Spoken vocabulary at five impacts on reading comprehension at fifteen years of age. Yet children from the poorest 20% are already a year behind with spoken vocabulary by 5. There are many children in our classrooms who need support. This two day course will enable successful candidates to deliver training on Word Aware 1 (primary) and WA2 (Early Years)

Word Aware is a structured whole school approach to promote the vocabulary development of all children. Focussed on whole class learning, the approach is of particular value for those who start at a disadvantage - including children with Special Educational Needs and those who speak English as an additional language. This approach is full of practical and inspiring ideas that can be easily applied by busy classroom practitioners to develop both spoken and written vocabulary. Course participants will have resources and ideas to deliver training immediately.
