Help, I'm in Charge of the School Library! (primary version)

SLA one day training course for primary school teachers and support staff

Trainer - Susan Staniforth                      Venue - Heath Educational Books, Sutton, Surrey

Have you recently taken over responsibility for looking after the library but are not sure where to start? If so, this course is for you!  An essential course for anyone new to running or managing a school library, delegates will consider the role of the library in the school, gain an overview about all aspects of managing the school library and learn about the processes and practical aspects of running it.  They will also have the opportunity to look at a range of resources for classroom collections as well as the Library.

Topics covered will include creating an inspiring library environment, library organisation and maintenance (including an introduction to Dewey and the benefits of a range of Library Management systems), selecting and buying books, library promotion, budgeting and writing a library policy/development plan. Delegates will leave with the confidence to move the library forward and ensure it is used to maximum effect within their schools.
