Jolly Education and Training is driven by experienced teachers aimed at helping teachers. The professional development programs designed at Jolly Education and Training are based on methodologies that are both scientifically proven and effective in the classroom.
The National Inquiry into the Teaching of Literacy (2005) supports the methodology of ‘explicit teaching of phonics’ in Australian classrooms. The team behind Jolly Education and Training believes that synthetic phonics is the key to becoming a successful reader and writer. The team supports synthetic phonics programs such as Jolly Phonics in both their teacher professional development programs and student reading programs.
The classroom experience of the Jolly Education and Training team enables them to know what teachers want to get out of a workshop. The professional development workshops are peer driven with plenty of hands-on strategies.
