Seven Stories’ training and CPD offers are developed by creative learning specialists to guide educators, practitioners and students through Seven Stories’ unique approach to working with children and young people. Whether exploring techniques to embed reading for pleasure or learning new ways of accessing creative writing utilising original materials from the Seven Stories collection these sessions will provide tangible approaches and tools to use in the classroom.

Our training sessions offer a deeper level of engagement where young people explore reading for pleasure and its impact on young children. Through developing an understanding of the value of books and sharing stories with children and gaining practical story sharing skills, students will develop their own enjoyment of sharing stories and gain confidence in their own skills. Content includes a look at how high quality children’s books underpin and enhance formal and informal teaching, inspire responses and creative outcomes alongside increasing confidence to share stories.

‘Students see the training as valuable, and use evidence of the knowledge and skills they have developed to fulfil aspects of their programme requirements as well as in applications for jobs and university’ – Newcastle University Research on The Living Books Project
