This course takes a close look at the position that secondary schools, sixth form and FE colleges find themselves in now that reading levels (as identified under APP) are no longer acceptable to Ofsted. It will explore how this new demanding landscape makes the work of the school and college library critical to the success of the English department and whole school literacy: strategically creating opportunities, supporting and monitoring students’ progress in reading levels.
