- Consideration of resources, materials & assessment
- Frequently asked questions, and teachers have many of them!

"WOW! I came looking for ideas to improve how I teach reading and writing with my children. What an over-powering, awe inspiring experience. Totally transformative. I now teach the 5 core skills relentlessly and the children are progressing at rates I would’ve previously thought impossible. I got it all in this course – pedagogy, principles, practices, approaches & techniques, advice and plenty of ideas. And the course chat forums were wonderful too, great to chat with fellow teachers on a like-minded mission! Anyway….We are now singing our way to success. Well done CPD College.” Emer, UK, 2015
