ELS Training Package
Getting all children to
read well, quickly.
Essential Letters and Sounds Training works on a subscription based model.
Schools signing up to the ELS training package will pay:
1 form entry or smaller: £520 in year one and £320 in subsequent resubscription years
2 form entry plus : £650 in year one and £400 in subsequent resubscription years
Re-subscription in subsequent years is significantly reduced to ensure ELS schools are able to continue to provide CPD to all existing staff and those new to the school
If you are part of a trust considering joining with a number of schools, please do get in touch
Please note- this is for the ELS Training package.
You will also require an ELS Teaching Subscription with Oxford University Press.
The ELS approach
The principles of Essential Letters and Sounds are based upon:
the delivery of whole class high-quality first teaching with well-structured daily lesson plans
the use of consistent terminology used by teachers, children and parents
the use of consistent resources that support the teaching of ELS
effective use of repetition throughout the programme
maximizing the impact of regular and manageable assessment to ensure that all children keep up rather than catch up.

As teachers and leaders, we understand the time pressures you face. To ensure ELS training can be delivered at a time and pace that suits your school, we provide a number of pre-recorded training episodes for all staff and additional virtual training for the ELS Leaders in your school.
A whole school approach
A whole-school ethos and fidelity to ELS is vital.
This is why whole school training in ELS is imperative.
