A Special Offer For WA Schools Term 3 2024

SharpReading is Coming to WA

Perth and beyond, Term 3 
26 August-13 September

What are we offering?

We are taking bookings for our full range of training sessions.
There are huge advantages to be gained from doing any of the following options in your school..

BOOK In-School Support

The Key to Successful PD
Research on Professional Development identifies in-class coaching as the single most important component of successful uptake of new PD approaches.
If you have teachers who have already completed or are working on our ONLiNE training this is a perfect chance for them to get some one-on-one coaching with the writer of the program, in their own classroom, with their own students.
We will problem-solve all those unique issues that may exist.   "The best PD ever," say the teachers.

BOOK In-School Coach Training

How do we maintain the integrity and longevity of our SharpReading investment?
Implementing change in a school and ensuring that these changes are then held on to across the school presents one of the biggest challenges for management. Having an In-School coach is the game changer.
Take advantage of personalised training for your in-school expert(s) so that they have the resources, skills and confidence to be the school driver.  This is very cost-effective because we build the practical Coach training into the in-class coaching.

We can provide Start-Up workshops (4 hours) for Stages 1&2: Decoding Fluency (Year 1-3 teachers) and Stage 3Comprehension Skills  (Year 2-6 teachers). We can do these in your school at a time that suits.

More information about In-School Support

NOW....we offer you In-School Support (a SharpReading Consultant in your school) to embed this approach to reading instruction across your school and future proof your PD investment.

We can achieve these two objectives simultaneously.

In-Class Coaching

As you will know, the enemies of successful School-wide PD are...

1. Teacher error -  misinterpretation of the intention of the routines (even with access to video models) and ‘get it wrong’.
2. Waning enthusiasm - other things take over, poor implementation may result in doubting the effectiveness of the approach.

THE FIX: In-class coaching with the 'expert'.
We schedule a 45 minutes session in each classroom so that we can identify any issues with delivery and fix them up, provide lesson modelling, team teaching, anything your teacher needs to reignite their enthusiasm and get them on track to meeting that standard we have set which gets the very best deal for your students (all very non-threatening).

COST: $1200 AUD per day PLUS $250* per day for travel and accommodation.
*Travel and accommodation costs may vary depending on your location.
A day includes six in-class sessions PLUS before school briefing and after school debriefs as is deemed necessary. 

PLEASE NOTE: No relief teachers required! This is a huge plus!

Train a SharpReading Coach

Develop in-school expertise to future-proof your PD investment

  • Identify your own SharpReading Champions within the school and get them trained to take over the In-Class Coaching.

  • We will develop their skills for working alongside their peers and setting up a school wide plan to maintain the momentum and the integrity of the program over time.

COST:  COACH ONLiNE Course $250 AUD 
Prospective Coaches need to complete this ONLiNE Course before a planned visit.
All other training costs are included in In-Class Coaching Costs!

All practical coach training can be run currently with the In-Class support so there is no additional cost!

All we need is for your Coach- in-Training to be released to accompany the SharpReading Consultant during the In-Class Coaching sessions.

Don't have the budget to cover all teachers for in-school Coaching?
Book us for a minimum of 1 day, select a sample of teachers (6), and the focus can be on the Coach training. We do not guarantee that a Coach in training will be accredited after just one day, but they will be well advanced in developing the Coaching skills to be able to support the rest of your staff.

An Endorsement from a SharpReading Coach

"Your In-School support has been a brilliant PD process Hilton. Not only do the teachers get quality personalised feedback and coaching from you, but we have been able to use the sessions for the practical part of my Coach training which has been invaluable.

 Observing you Hilton working with the teachers meant that I was able to get a feel for the approach you took in the coaching role and that it was absolutely such a supportive one which made the teachers at ease straight away. It was evident to see that this is key to the teacher's success and confidence in delivering SharpReading. It also left me feeling confident to take over that role provisionally until I am accredited as a Sharp Reading Coach. 

 I really appreciated the significant support for establishing an ongoing plan for monitoring and supporting teachers in the short and long term. Your timely responses to questions and queries I've had through the year is much appreciated. We love the program and most importantly have seen significant progress in reading comprehension in our children as the year has progressed."
