Literacy workshops

As education facilitators, Folens endeavour to provide quality, engaging events and workshops with world-class speakers. Our aim is to empower teachers and give an insight into topical issues facing education.

In November 2018 we were delighted to welcome back Stephen Graham.  Stephen Graham is a Professional Development Literacy Consultant working with Cengage Learning. Having completed a Master’s Degree in Children’s Literacy, Reading Recovery Training and a Deputy Principal role, Stephen understands the issues confronting today’s teachers. His wealth of varied experience in education also led to his appointment as Literacy Consultant for the NSW Department of Education and Training. Teachers who attended found the workshops 'Understanding Guided Reading in the classroom' to be informative and extremely useful.
