Training Resources​

We have a mix of resources to help you to deliver consistent results across your whole team.

Online Training Suite

Mandatory training for new AAL teachers: We have built a suite of short videos to help you build your understanding of how to get the best results with All Aboard Phonics, whatever your past experience of phonics teaching. Each one has a self-assessment quiz to see if you have absorbed the contents of the video:

CPD Personal Training

We are running deep training programmes to take individual teachers to a new level of expertise in literacy and phonics, including the 9 main causes of reading difficulty. Teaching phonics is technically difficult and intervention work can be even more complex. So getting great literacy results takes both experience and good training.

Experience takes time, but we can deliver the training part for you!

The courses are made up of four 1-hour sessions on Zoom with a final 3-hour session. Attendees will earn a certificate for what they have learned.

The cost for training is £250 per attendee however we are offering this course for free to all the schools new to All Aboard Phonics in 2021 and 2022. We want to maximise the results you see as fast as possible.
