About the course
Our new Transition: Supporting literacy with curriculum cohesion Quick Course will challenge you to reflect on your understanding of transition in its broadest meaning, and how it impacts day-to-day learning as well as more major shifts in learners’ education.
You will learn about key theories in the field of transition research, the major types of transition encountered in the UK education systems, and useful strategies that can be put in place across the curriculum to support cohesion – especially for learners with literacy difficulties and/or SEND.
Our language difficulties Quick Course will give you a foundation understanding of how language skills develop and how learners need to use language skills to access different aspects of the curriculum – and how difficulties with language can impact on their overall learning. We’ll also share evidence-based, tried and tested strategies for supporting language and literacy difficulties in the classroom, and curated teaching resources to download and use later.
Following this Quick Course, you will:
- Understand the fullest definition of ‘transition’ in education and key theories related to this field;
- Understand how a cohesive curriculum, which spans across phases, can support transition, academic attainment, and literacy;
- Know what critical transitions a pupil is likely to encounter in their education journey;
- Have a repertoire of resources and knowledge which can be used to develop curriculum cohesion in the classroom
