Securing Sentences: Improving Writing and Grammatical Understanding

Multi Session Event

This is a new professional development opportunity.  The intention is to support teachers with effective strategies to assess children’s grammatical understanding as opposed to looking for evidence of application of skills in writing.  The training will link closely with No Nonsense Grammar, but the publication is not essential.

There will be two sessions with an expectation of teachers completing activity with children between the sessions.

Online training aimed at teachers or subject leaders.


This programme is open to all schools but if you are a Devon maintained school selecting Improving Writing and Grammatical Understanding as your subsidised support choice from English Professional Development Focussed on Teaching and Learning: Content and Pedagogical Subject Knowledge and Subject Leadership, please use voucher code: ENGL1031 when booking your place(s) to receive this at the subsidised rate of £20 per person (up to 2 subsidised places per Devon maintained school).
