Andrew Jennings from Vocabulary Ninja is now available for a wide variety of CPD/INSET, training and Conferences promoting the importance of vocabulary within the modern curriculum whilst equipping schools with the strategies, resources and most importantly, the mind-set to make vocabulary a priority in school.
Since the success of Vocabulary Ninja, Andrew has had 6 more books published on the specific area of reading retrieval within reading comprehension. Unsurprisingly, all 6 books have been massive hits and quickly become best-sellers in their own rights! Andrew is available to work directly with schools or pupils to deliver training on the various strategies covered in each of the books, to develop a clear system for reading retrieval in school. Covering skimming and scanning, reading strategies including understanding key words, how to efficiently highlight information during a pre-read and strategies to support the effective retrieval of information from a text.
Andrew has been teaching in schools for 9 years and was an assistant headteacher for the last three years. He has always been engaged in the design aspect of resources and systems and has developed high-impact arithmetic and reading systems for primary schools. Andrew launched Vocabulary Ninja in April 2017 to improve the levels of understanding and confidence of pupils as well as Key Stage 2 outcomes, and since then has gained thousands of followers from across the world for his work with vocabulary, and now reading.
