Thank you to the enthusiastic and passionated teachers who joined us at St Joseph’s College in Geelong for the Literacy for Learning tutor training. Read below what they had to say about the training.
- Thoroughly engaging – providing the time for clarification and conversation both from the facilitator and group was invaluable. Sequenced to build awareness and then really focus in on developing capability. The language in the manuals and the course incorporate technicality but also target teachers from all sectors. Carly Sopronick, Head of Teaching Services, Atherton State High School
- Enjoyment – 10/10. Brilliant group. Impact – huge. Best PD I’ve done in 25 years. I feel empowered to lead literacy development in our school and excited that I can take an active part in this chapter. Content is so relevant and accessible. The perfect blend of theory and practice. Vicky Mills, Literacy Coach, St Joseph’s College Geelong
- Incredible value and potential. It consolidated a lot of other PD. I’m very excited about the potential for this course to improve student learning. You have filled many gaps in my learning. Kate Angikiamo, Learning Leader English, Galen Catholic College
- Engaging course that is highly relevant to our needs. Extremely valuable to me as a teacher. Would be useful to other staff as well as we roll out the program. Brian is excellent, well organised and structured. Fantastic week! I’ve learned a lot. Kate Gibbs, Teacher / Literacy Coach, St Joseph’s College Geelong
- Although an intense 4 days, highly enjoyable and the value is clear immediately. Although we have touched on a lot of this before in previous sessions, it was great to have it all in one place, sequentially and good to consolidate learning. Extremely valuable, to myself as a leader and teacher. Erin Norman, Curriculum Coordinator, St Josephs College Geelong
- Thoroughly enjoyed! An intense four days, but it has really given me the opportunity to strengthen my understanding of the literacy strategies. Extremely valuable for my own personal growth. Revisiting what I completed in 2008 in ESL in the Mainstream and bringing connections from this to my actual teaching. Gemma Gray, Literacy Coordinator, St Josephs College Geelong
