We're sorry

Teachfind is temporarily down for scheduled maintenance

We're shifting Teachfind to a more powerful setup, so when it comes back it will be much faster than before.

We should be back up and running within a day or two.

In the meantime, why not find out about our new application Teacher Dashboard.

It turns Office365 into a powerful LMS, and it's free...

Tailors office365 to teaching.

Talk for Writing: Continuing professional development

Talk for Writing grew out of a series of workshops that professional writer Pie Corbett presented on behalf of the National Strategies in 2008 and is built around the experience of teachers who subsequently developed these approaches in their own classrooms.

These teachers found Talk for Writing to be enormously beneficial in terms of increasing children's enjoyment of writing as well as significantly accelerating their progress.

This day introduces participants to the principles and practices of Talk for Writing, provides some first-hand experience of these and shares the developing practice of some of the teachers who attended the workshops.

It also introduces the new National Strategies' Talk for Writing pack (00467-2008PCK-EN) and allows participants to begin to explore how these approaches will support the particular writing development needs of children in their class.
