2020 Professional Learning Opportunities

Phonics instruction should be a part of every classroom program. Most schools include it in their early literacy programs, however not all phonics approaches produce the same results.  ‘Getting Started with Phonics’ will unpack different methodologies of phonics teaching, present the evidence for effective instruction and outline what high impact teaching can look like in your classroom.   Partnering with Beam Consulting, Jocelyn brings the research of reading instruction to life in a day that is full to the brim with easily understood information, practical strategies and real-life wisdom. Suitable for both beginning and experienced teachers, this full day program will equip you and your team with the knowledge and strategies to maximise your students’ results in 2020.  Book HERE


Despite our best efforts, there are always those students whose progress in reading is not what we would hope. There are also those whose lack of progress can leave us and them despairing.

Partnering with Beam Consulting, Jocelyn will share evidenced based and practical strategies for helping struggling readers. She will dispel many of the myths that abound in current practice and provide real life examples of how poor and reluctant readers can be supported.

You will leave with a real insight into how and why many reading programs fail and to design strategies that will support ALL learners in your classroom. Book NOW!
