Program Description

This face-to-face training will support schools to design and deliver high-quality, evidence-based Tier 1 classroom practices across the essential elements of reading.

While Qualiteach has been designed to build foundational knowledge, this Spaced Learning will focus on how schools can apply what they have learned into classroom practice.

Schools can choose to focus on word recognition or oral reading fluency.
Schools will have access to:

  •  Targeted support to plan for, teach and assess word recognition (includes phonics and phonemic awareness)
  • Targeted support to plan for, teach and monitor oral reading fluency (includes accuracy, rate and expression).

All staff members involved in literacy leadership at their school are invited to participate with a maximum of 4 participants per school. This could include the principal, assistant principal, AST, QTC and teachers.

Qualiteach Modules 1 to 4 must be completed before enrolment.

Program Outcomes

Participants will be able to:

  • support their school to implement Quality Tier 1 instruction as part of structured literacy
  • use the resources and supports provided to support implementation of word recognition/oral reading fluency in their school.
