This pilot, commencing in the latter part of 2018, will work to strengthen basic literacy skills and support teachers to improve teaching practice and improve student learning outcomes. Over a number of months and units, teachers will gain a deeper understanding of how to apply basic literacy teaching approaches in the classroom, including reading, comprehension, the use of big books, and assessment. Participating teachers will be able to gain credits to advance their careers and INOVASI will implement the courses in routine, cluster-based, teachers’ working group meetings, using local facilitators, to ensure the courses are affordable and scalable. This pilot finished in July 2019.
