Join the community of teachers and schools across Australia who are now confident teaching grammar.

Grammar Basics Workshop is an accredited (TQI) and elective online professional development course. Our course allows teachers to learn at their own pace, in any location, with expert support. Both individual and school licences are available.

Who we are

We are a Canberra-based organisation which has delivered accredited PD in grammar to hundreds of teachers since 2015. In 2020, we converted our course to online learning, enabling us to support teachers Australia-wide.

Individual Licences

Many teachers complete Grammar Basics Workshop by enrolling directly through our website. Teachers and/or schools are welcome to purchase individual licences.

We suggest this option if:
* A teacher is seeking quality (TQI accredited or elective), self-paced PD to improve their English grammar knowledge.
* A school is seeking to improve the English grammar knowledge of a small number of teachers.

School Licences

Cost-effective school licences are also available, powered by our efficient and flexible PD management platform.

We suggest this option if:
* Your school would like to improve the English grammar knowledge of several teachers.
* Your school has a literacy focus.
* Your school would like to efficiently initiate and/or monitor English grammar PD for 10-30 (or more) teachers.

Once you have purchased a school licence (10, 20, 30, and 30+ packages available), your teachers can get started on Grammar Basics Workshop in seconds.
