What do they do?

In 2018/2019, they hosted 6 showcases. Over 200 participants attended after making a referral into their English Hub. Participants were able to hear their passionate team share best practice in the teaching of phonics, early language development as well as sharing their love of reading.

As a result, they were able to carry out over 30 funded audits in order to look at provision in their own school and to decide upon their next steps. 20 schools have also been selected for further support in 2019/2020.

They support schools by:

· Carrying out further showcases.

· Continue auditing schools in order to determine how to improve their provision.

· Fund training and workshops

What areas do they cover?

Their designated geographical areas include Cheshire West and Chester, Wirral, Liverpool, Halton, Sefton and Knowsley.

How can you get involved?

Self-referral into the English Hub means they can keep you informed about upcoming CPD, including their funded showcases.
