Take LearnUp's Online Structured Phonics Professional Development Course. It's Self-paced!

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, LearnUp shifted its in-person classes to an online pilot program last May with 1,000 people signed up to learn our way of teaching.  With this change,  we set our sights on reaching 5,000 educators around the world with a “pay-what-you-can” model.

This 20-hour program is designed to teach participants the fundamentals of structured phonics so that they can immediately put their new found knowledge to work with any level of reader.

This is a self-directed course.
