Teaching Reading in the Early Years- a step forward in planning

Many school communities are excited by the new path that the NSW K-2 English syllabus is taking and they are ready to jump in feet first into evidence-based reading instruction. Armed with the understanding that a systematic and explicit approach to reading instruction is the most effective in reaching all learners, many schools are now seeking to understand what that might mean in their context.

Come and Join our Team as a Professional Learning Educator!

Join the SPELD NSW Professional Learning team and provide evidence-based professional learning, workshops, consulting and resources to teachers, tutors and other professionals, schools and families. This role is ideal for a teacher who is passionate about the science of reading and learning.
