Monday 2nd September 2013, was the first day of trading for The Literacy Company. Now, more than nine years later, we revel in the excitement and challenge of taking on new roles, working in new authorities, working internationally and developing a range of programmes and wider resources to support teachers.
In the beginning, we were a team of just two, today we are a team of fourteen. A passionate, creative, dedicated and determined team. The same characteristics we had on day one, but bigger in number.
Throughout this entire time, our love of books, our passion for literacy, and our drive and desire to share this with as many teachers as possible has never waned. This is what makes us tick. This is why we continually strive, research and develop our training, our products and services. Our aim is to inspire pupils and support teachers.
Our ten-year journey has seen government changes, a new curriculum, life after levels, teacher assessment frameworks and new Ofsted frameworks; our journey has certainly been anything but plain sailing!
Each challenge has heightened our resolve, reinforced our team ethos and tightened our approach. Each challenge has made us stronger and more determined to be the best that we can be for each of the pupils we aim to inspire.
We are now based in a larger office that suits our growing team: this is supporting us in the continued development of our Pathways Literacy programmes.
2018 saw the launch of our core programme, Pathways to Write: there are now 5 programmes within the suite of resources. This has taken an inordinate amount of research and development to bring to market, and we are very proud of Pathways Literacy. Nothing pleases us more than seeing the outcomes of our support.
Pathways Literacy is currently used in over 600 schools, and we are seeing brilliant outcomes. We are so excited for the schools that we partner and for the pupils that we impact on. This would not have been possible without our fabulous team. Their passion, determination and dedication impress us every single day.
As we move forward, our commitment to teachers and pupils will remain at the core of all that we do. We will continually strive to innovate and be at the forefront of the development of literacy in schools.
