Benefits of Being a Handwriting Specialist Teacher...
Boosts Your Employability Power
Whether you want to remain in your current school (at your current position or in a new position) or you want to seek employment at a new school, you can stand out from all the others when you showcase your Handwriting Specialist certificate. With your additional training and certification, you can demonstrate to your employer how your skills will improve the performance levels of the pupils and of the school as a whole. Then, when parents and inspection agencies scrutinise your school's achievement outcomes, you will be able to take pride in knowing that you are able to make an impact, have influence and even continue to make income.
Boosts Your Pupils' Learning Power
Imagine your pupils enjoying and excelling in maths, reading, writing, science, social studies, and in the arts...all because you take proactive measures to elevate your training.
As a Handwriting Specialist, you will give your pupils the skills they need to unlock their learning, thinking, problem-solving, and innovating. Then, when your school presents performance data to inspection agencies, you can confidently showcase your efforts to address areas that need development and areas of improvement. When the inspection agency publishes its review of your school on its website, your school will shine above the others and may be able to enjoy longer time periods between inspections.
Boosts Your School's Recruitment Power
Having Handwriting Specialists in your school raises your school's overall academic performance levels. This allows your school to recruit and retain high-quality staff members. With high-quality staff who deliver excellence in the classroom, your school will attract parents who want to ensure their children will be in the school that has the best teachers and “specialists” . Through the data driven Match Fit Handwriting Skills Assessment, your Handwriting Specialists teachers will assess ALL of the children each year to ascertain if they are achieving the expected outcomes and if not, why not! When your school uses the Handwriting Match Fit Assessment to find out what barriers limit pupils' ability to perform at or above standards, your school is then able to deliver targeted, data driven interventions, to each and every child.
Our mission is to support and equip teachers, carers and pupils in their efforts to maximise academic success and every interaction with each other.
