What our clients say
Our work with the British Section at the Lycée International, Saint Germain-en-Laye
Following a day long interview/planning session with the school leaders we designed a two year academic literacy programme for all secondary teachers, including training, in class coaching and joint classroom resources development.
We went on to provide training and a handbook for History and Geography teachers across the ASIBA group of schools. Most recently we have worked with primary teachers on assessment frameworks and developing a curriculum which supports pupils to read and write the key text types (or genres) they will encounter.
