Reading Matters conference to address ways of ‘Closing the Literacy Gap’

Our conference on the 29th of June next year will explore the fundamental issue of ‘Closing the Literacy Gap’ and look at how we can achieve the best outcomes for all pupils, regardless of their starting point in life.

The conference will take place at Bradford City Football Stadium and will offer teachers, TAs, literacy advisors, librarians and anyone involved with literacy development, an inspiring and motivating day with great speakers, interesting workshops and lots of new ideas on how to improve literacy across the key stages.

The fantastic speakers who have confirmed so far are Education Consultant and Writer Matt Bromley, Author Andy Seed, Paula Clarke of the University of Leeds, Deborah Bullivant Director of Grimm & Co and Rachel Van Riel of Opening the Book.

Over the next few weeks our e-bulletin will feature detailed profiles of each of the speakers and their particular specialisms to really wet your appetites for what we can expect at the conference!

Tickets are priced at the ‘Early Bird’ rate of £85 until the 31/03/2017 and £100 thereafter. Don’t miss out on what promises to be a fantastic and uplifting day with lots of really valuable CPD content.  Book here now!
