THRASS COURSES GO ONLINE!
Due to continuing COVID-19 restrictions, our usual mode of course delivery isn’t possible. Instead, we are offering ‘virtual’ THRASS courses delivered using the Zoom online meeting platform. Participants will continue to receive their physical course materials and interact in real time with a THRASS trainer and other attendees.
IMPORTANT – Places are limited, please book early to allow plenty of time for your course materials to arrive.

Whole School in-service
Unfortunately since phonics has officially re-entered the national agenda many poorly grounded, unsustainable and counterproductive ‘phonic’ programs have emerged/re-emerged. By doing a THRASS course you’ll put your teachers ‘ahead of the game’ in terms of content, skills and sustainable strategies, thereby greatly increasing their chances of helping learners to avoid reading and spelling problems.
