Advisory Services

Advisory support is a key part of The School Library Service's work with schools. Our advisory, training and consultancy services can bring your school library up-to-date and help your students develop their library and research skills and love of reading.

Using resources We run school-based training courses on using resources (books, artefacts and costumes) in imaginative ways to support the curriculum and to develop creativity.

We are keen to help schools keep up-to-date with new books and resources and to find ways of inspiring their students to become readers and the school to develop as a reading community. We have a number of programmes and strategies to help with this, working in partnership with other organisations like Reading Connects and The Reading Agency.

We have established training programmes on:

  • Best practice in creating classroom book corners
  • The use of learning resources in the classroom, including the use of artefacts

How good is your school library?

We can help with all aspects of school libraries. Whether you need to set up a new library, take a fresh look at an existing library or appoint a new member of staff – we can provide experienced staff to help with this process.
