JPH03 - Jolly Phonics, Irish English Version
Jolly Phonics: using synthetic phonics to ensure that all children learn to read



This self-paced on-line course examines the processes children go through when learning to read and write and shows how phonic knowledge is integral to these processes. Through this course, you will gain an in-depth understanding of the synthetic-phonics approach and will learn how best to apply this knowledge in the classroom. The course also includes a number of useful teaching resources and demonstrates how they can be used to facilitate the children's learning. The final part of the course examines the findings of recent studies, which confirm the importance of phonics in the teaching of reading.

The on-line format of the course enables you to study whenever and wherever you wish. Content is divided into five modules. You may complete these modules in any order, but you must complete all five within three months.


Participants are encouraged to interact with one another using the communication tools (forum, chat, e-mail) provided by the CPD College learning system. Active facilitation throughout the duration of the course provides expert guidance and feedback for all participants.

A number of activities and assignments, which invite critical analysis and a reasoned response, are interposed with the text in this highly interactive web-based course. On completion of the course, the participant will be able to download a certificate and their own personal CPD record. The CPD record details the time the student spent on the course, the student's responses to assignment questions and an assessment of the student's engagement with the course from the course facilitator.

This course includes video streaming of Sue Lloyd's recent seminar to teachers in Kilkenny Education Centre.
