An online training course is being developed to introduce early childhood professionals to Let's Read and enable them to promote early literacy and reading with children from birth. The Let’s Read online training course will be available from June 2013.
This course is accessible and interactive and will support professionals to:
establish an understanding of emergent literacy
understand the Let’s Read framework, including key messages, reading tips and tools and resources
develop the skills and confidence to model Let’s Read strategies with families
use a strength-based approach to engage and empower families to promote early literacy activities from birth
consider planning and evaluating strategies for implementing Let’s Read in their community
Further online support mechanisms (ie: user forums, webinars) are being explored that will provide professionals with a suite of learning opportunities and support. Online training communities and self-paced learning options will all form part of the online training implementation model.
