Subject Leader

Join this termly opportunity to visit the CLPE Literacy Library, network with other subject and school leaders and hear about important developments in Literacy and education, including from Ofsted and the DFE.

This Summer event will have a special focus on writing, considering how to implement best practice across your school and the support that we can offer to you as part of the CLPE community of schools. 

Each termly session will give you the chance to:

  • Be updated on recent and relevant research and how this makes direct impact in the classroom;
  • Find out about new high quality texts to inspire children as readers and writers;
  • Learn about new resources to support the teaching of literacy in your school;
  • Network with other literacy leaders to discuss current priorities and learn from each other’s experiences.

This event will be led by CLPE's Lead Advisory Teacher, Anjali Patel, with support from our team of Primary Advisory Teachers.

This event is free for CLPE School Members 


Why choose CLPE for your literacy training?

CLPE is a respected, trusted and innovative centre of excellence, its reputation established over its fifty-year history of training teachers in best practice that is rooted in ground-breaking research. Our responsiveness to trends and patterns in education means we are able to guide you in interpreting policy with integrity.

Our face-to-face courses are all held at our Literacy Library a unique 25,000 volume resource, which enables us to place high-quality children’s literature at the heart of our ethos and practice. Each course is delivered by one of CLPE’s expert advisory teachers, who can draw on decades of experience and expertise in leadership and literacy, supporting you to effect sustainable change that is built on a solid foundation of evidence.


The relevance of the things mentioned. No one school is the same and what is great about CLPE and the training on offer, is that they recognise this. There is always an emphasis on meeting the needs of the current cohort and what they specifically need as opposed to a one fits all approach.

English Subject Leader, 2024

It has got me thinking about a lot in my role as English Subject Lead. It was useful in directing me to current research that is worth being aware of. 

English Subject Leader, 2024

Anjali is excellent at keeping us up-to-date with latest research and giving useful and impactful ways that it can be used in practice.
