Talk for Writing training

Talk for Writing works best as a whole-school approach. To develop and embed any approach effectively, schools should commit to a sequence of training. We do offer some one-off taster days, but one day will rarely lead to transformational change if it is not followed up with focused support.

A day’s training with a school or small cluster from 9am to 3.30pm costs £1250 plus expenses for up to 50 delegates. If numbers exceed 50 then there is an additional fee of £50 per person. A day’s consultancy from 9am to 3.30pm costs £850 plus expenses. Where training is being organised by a third party or the school is charging people to attend, the trainer’s fee is negotiable.

Talk for Writing training is also available internationally. Prices for international training differ to those for UK training. If your school is not based in the UK, please email contact@talk4writing.com

When emailing to request training, please state where your school is, and why the training is important to you. If a trainer cannot meet your request, they will email you to offer alternative dates or forward you to an alternative consultant. There is very high demand for training. Please try to avoid requesting obvious training days at the start and end of every half term, as these are liable to be fully booked many months in advance. If you can opt for a mid-week day, then our consultants are much more likely to be able to help you.
