Liz Greensides’ very popular Rainbow Writing course is now being delivered across the North East of England by Lee Baxter, who worked closely with Liz during her recent interim headship. Lee has experience of leading teaching across the whole primary age range, including EYFS, and recently worked as a lead practitioner alongside Liz.

NB: Lee can also be booked to teach sample model writing lessons across the school, to demonstrate the techniques used. Schools may also wish to incorporate this into a day’s training.

Benefits of Booking this Training:

This course supports teachers’ understanding of the teaching of writing – no gimmicks, no quick fixes! – just simple and effective techniques which really work.
