Training: Reader development
Phone: 07950 408347
"We invited consultant Jerry Hurst to run a twilight training session for staff followed by an evening session for parents of pupils in our pre-school through to Year 7. Jerry gave practical tips on how to promote reading for pleasure in our schools and at home which have further strengthened the relationship between the parents and school in supporting the pupils in their learning. I can highly recommend Jerry to any school; he will entertain you, inspire you but, most of all, he will give you great ideas on how to improve and extend reading opportunities for pupils both at school and at home." Shirley Drummond, Teacher at Cadogan House, Royal Masonic School for Girls.
"Need the rest of our staff to hear Jerry, so will organise an INSET day!"Teacher.
"Many thanks for the fab course the other week. I and my colleague found it very inspiring - so much so that I want to do a small project with teenage mums." Public Library Staff.
effect on staff has been overwhelming.
worked with Jerry as a colleague, and have also contracted him to
deliver training courses for the programmes I work with, particularly
Chatterbooks, Young Cultural Creators, and TRF (Their Reading Futures).
I've always found him a great colleague - knowledgeable and inspiring,
delivering high-quality and stimulating training, and always up-to-date,
pertinent and thoroughly-researched consultancy work
on the planning, delivery and evaluation of reader development with
readers of all ages and abilities - this can include children, teenagers,
adults or older people and can focus on particular activity, such
as reading groups.
As with all of Jerry's training, sessions can be tailored to specific local needs. Jerry is also happy to create new courses. Training is adaptable to Library, School, Archive, Theatre, Arts, Museum, Heritage, Sports and Leisure settings. The focus can be work with children, teenagers or adults or the full range of service provision.
