BECAUSE OF YOU
When thinking about what to say in my TEDx Talk, I decided to just go with the truth. Based on my trajectory, I should be in prison, on drugs or lost in prostitution. I’m not because of the handful of everyday heroes in school who made a meaningful connection with me.
I reinvigorate educators by showcasing the huge difference made by the smallest actions they take and share how my powerful journey, from an abused and neglected child to a teacher, consultant and business owner, was made possible by a handful of teachers.
“Jaz has transformed writing in our school. Both students and teachers have high expectations.”

You understand that teachers are at different stages in their own level of expertise , and so need everyone singing from the same page! Jaz shares her ‘done for you’ termly roadmap for shared clarity.
In addition to fantastic data, your goal is autonomous learners and confident educators. Jaz leave teachers motivated and with practical strategies to use the very next day.

Jaz is passionate about the difference teachers make. Having identified reading, writing and spelling as her own tickets out of physical and mindset poverty, Jaz went on to become a teacher herself. Since 1995 when she became the first Jolly Phonics Trainer, she has been been inspiring educators, governments and students all over the world.
Jaz’s mantra is: ‘Resources aren’t magic – teachers are!’ She shares her planning, assessment, and examples of children’s work to empower educators and encourage them to have high expectations – of their learners and themselves.
Jaz shares her How To Guide that enables learners to take ownership of applying their literacy skills, not just in phonics lessons, but across the curriculum. Her enthusiasm is infectious and her background as a stand up comedian makes for a session that are engaging and resourceful.
WHAT’S ON OFFER?
CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE FROM JAZ’s THREE OPTIONS BELOW…
OPTION ONE: INTERACTIVE ONLINE TRAINING
Spelling Secrets is a quick and easy way to boost expertise, consistency throughout a school and most of all confidence in those delivering the teaching. I designed my online course specifically for teachers after over twenty years helping school improve their literacy teaching. The course includes short, snappy and straight-talking videos, downloadable resources and the opportunity to ask me those burning questions!
Suitable for Key Stage One and Key Stage Two teachers, assistants and trainees, whether beginner or expert, Spelling Secrets connects phonics to spelling and into writing. It equips educators with everything they need to boost outcomes, increase independence, and most importantly, give leaners the best start in life.
The course is amiable immediately, which means there’s no need to wait for the next spare staff meeting!

OPTION TWO: IN PERSON GROUP TRAINING
The old model of in school training is akin to having your tonsils out. You invite an expert, who puts everyone to sleep, does something to fix a problem and then sends you all on your way! That’s the exact opposite to how I work with schools. Phonics, spelling and grammar can be dry topics without real clarity around the WHY behind teaching them. I help people to see things differently and put the fun back into teaching children to read, spell and write.
Starting with your school’s current reality, I design an interactive and practical hands on session, aimed at finding and filling gaps standing in the way of you reaching your future vision. Planning and resources are included in the price to enable staff to start implementing strategies immediately. Staff leave inspired and motivated to focus on teaching with the end in mind. After the training I am on hand to support their next steps.
In person training is perfect for a variety of settings, ranging from schools to teacher training bodies to and can bedelivered over a full day, half day or after school session. Many of the schools I work with team up and share the cost with others. All schools involved benefits from a thirty minute Consultancy Call to set the agenda before the session and a Next Steps Report after the training. The investment for the whole package, including meeting with the Literacy Team, training, planning, resources, Next Steps Report and post training support begins at £795 per school when three or more schools are attending, £1195 per school for two schools and £2495 for one school.
