E-learning Module 2 – Gathering and submitting your evidence

A short, e-learning module supporting the gathering and submitting of evidence for your Reading Schools accreditation


Welcome to our Reading Schools e-learning page for gathering and submitting your evidence for accreditation, where we have curated a series of learning elements to help give you a clear idea of the programme’s expectations and assist with planning your Reading Schools journey.

There are three learning areas covered on this page, providing you with an overview of the Reading Schools evidence requirements across the framework key areas, an understanding of what types of evidence you will be asked to provide and preparing you for your submission.

Once you have completed all learning outcomes, you can join us at one of our (this will open in a new window)drop in support sessions, where we will discuss what you have learned and what your Reading Schools submission might look like. In this session there will be an opportunity to ask questions and meet fellow Reading Schools from across Scotland.
