We have an exciting range of courses on offer for the next academic year. These courses are building on from the well received and highly successful courses which took place in 2007-2008. Each course is making use of our ‘Active Approaches’ concept which is seeking to enrich students’ experience of literature to inform their written response and raise standards.

All the courses will take place in a quality venue. Delegates all receive a course pack giving full details of the activities undertaken.
