Develop your skills, knowledge and dispositions as a literacy master trainer to facilitate Literacy Local Leaders (formerly Leading Literacy for Networks).

Literacy master trainers are experts with a deep understanding of effective literacy practice who demonstrate commitment and leadership of literacy improvement in schools.

Bastow is providing training for 2 literacy master trainers nominated by their network and endorsed by the region.

This course is part of our Literacy Suite


Teachers, school leaders, principals and regional staff, including Education Improvement Leaders, Professional Learning Community Managers or Senior Education Improvement Leaders (SEILs).

2 literacy experts from each network will do a 5-day course (at Bastow in North Melbourne), with the expectation that they will deliver one intake of the 5-day Literacy Local Leaders within their network. 

The training provides Literacy Master Trainers with the skills, knowledge and dispositions to facilitate the Literacy Local Leaders.

One intake of the 5-day Literacy Local Leaders course will be delivered locally in each network in Victoria. There is a maximum of 30 primary literacy leaders per network intake.

Participants are selected through a nomination process.

  • Submit your nomination to the Area Executive Director (AED) and Executive Director School Improvement (EDSI). The AED and EDSI will work closely with SEILs and Network Chairs to endorse nominees.
  • Nominees will be notified and details sent to Bastow.

Following regional endorsement, successful nominees will be invited to register for the 2019 intake.
