Concerns about the gap between boys’ and girls’ achievement in writing are not new. At all key stages, the gap is wider than that in reading and has persisted over a number of years. As early as the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), practitioners are often aware that boys appear less interested in writing and that by the end of the reception year, their attainment is already falling behind that of girls. We know that this must change.

This course will enable staff to understand the reasoning behind the literacy gap and will provide them with cutting-edge techniques to encourage literacy in young boys and inspire them to change the trends and narrow the gap.

The learning objectives for this course are as follows:

  1. To understand how to improve outcomes for boys in literacy by using successful strategies
  2. To improve, embed and enhance your current provision
  3. To understand that literacy provision in your setting engages boys, supports their development and challenges their thinking

This course ensures your practice is in line with the requirements of the Childcare Act 2006 (the Act), as amended by the Children and Families Act 2014. It will also support your continuous professional development and enable you to keep well informed and up-to-date with current practice.

Should you wish to discuss your training needs based on the children in your care, please call 0800 774 787.
