About Sounds-Write Training
Sounds-Write is a linguistic phonics program which uses an evidence-based and highly effective approach to teach reading, spelling and writing. Training in the program is an intensive and practical experience and provides participants with the 'why,'what' and the 'how' to teach reading, spelling and writing to students over the first three years of their schooling.
The program can also be used as a targeted intervention for students of any age who need to develop their reading and/or spelling accuracy. It is easily tailored to be delivered in small groups or with individuals. Sounds-Write was created by John Walker, Susan Case and David Philpot. For more information about the Sounds-Write Linguistic Phonics Program visit www.sounds-write.co.uk
Sounds-Write Practitioner Training is available through a four-day, face-to-face course and an online training course is also now available. The online course lasts for four weeks (see below for more details). All participants receive a Sounds-Write manual and gain access to hundreds of online materials.

What Does the Online Sounds-Write Training Involve?
The online course takes place over six weeks. At the start of each week, new content is made available and set tasks need to be completed in that week. Here is an overview of the course structure and time commitment required:
Week 0 (~2 hours of work): In this week you will become familiar with the online platform, introduce yourself and meet your trainer and other trainees. The course includes a discussion forum where you will be able to ask questions, and where you will contribute to some course discussions.
Weeks 1 - 4 (~6-8 hours of work per week): New content is made available at the start of each week. This includes reading material, explanation and demonstration videos and lesson practise. You also have assessment tasks to complete. Active participation in the online discussion forum is encouraged.
Week 5 (~2 hours of work): This week has no formal new content, but you will be able to revisit anything in the course before the course closes. At the end of week 5, the course website will close, and you will no longer have access to the online course.
Live sessions: There will be 6 synchronous sessions online during the course, using the Zoom platform. These will take the form of a live Q&A with the Trainer, and also provide the opportunity to consolidate your understanding. For those who cannot attend the live sessions, these will be recorded and made available during the course.
