Dear valued customer, we will be closed during the second half of March 2O18.
Orders placed after Wednesday 14 March will not be able to be despatched until the week commencing 02 April 2018. Please accept our sincere apologies for this delay.

Ants in the Apple is able to provide professional development trainings at NSW metropolitan and country venues to support our texts and resources.


The "Course Outline" downloads below contain outlines for standard in-services covering reading, spelling, writing and comprehension.


NOTE: In-services may be tailored to suit the particular requirements of those attending, and we are pleased to discuss in-service content prior to the training.

Usually a school elects to be the “host” school and provides the venue (e.g. the school library) and basic catering for the day. To obtain the necessary number of participants, the host school may invite teachers from surrounding schools to attend. The minimum number of participants at professional development training days is 8. In order to maintain training effectiveness, the maximum number of participants is 30.


The  "Professional Development Information PDF" download below contains advice on the organisation, presentation requirements, training costs and travel and accommodation disbursements associated with professional development courses.
