Equipping educators with the confidence and skills to teach creative writing is essential to our mission. Our ‘Think Like a Writer’ CPD offer for First Story lead teachers is a four-unit online course, delivered over one term, that focuses on equipping teachers with strategies to develop their own creative writing practice and teach creative writing in their school.
- Our training leads to increased enjoyment of creative writing by teachers themselves, as they build their confidence as writers.
- Teachers report increased confidence and capability in delivering creative lessons, as a result of First Story’s training.
- Through our training teachers gain access to resources and increased knowledge of specific strategies for developing students’ writing.
