But the accolades don’t stop there …

NAPLAN Writing Success won Teaching or Reference Resource of the Year (Secondary) and was awarded ‘Highly Commended’ in the primary category. In a glowing review, the judge wrote:

NAPLAN Writing Success is a new and exciting resource which supports teachers, students, and the school in developing students’ skills so that they achieve success in their writing.

Crafted for NAPLAN, this is an overarching and comprehensive resource which can be used by teachers and students in a diverse range of settings to improve outcomes beyond the NAPLAN parameters and beyond the NAPLAN years.

Moreover, this resource is multi-disciplinary, multi-media, packed full of videos, resources, teacher notes and it is bursting with pedagogical approaches and ideas for engaging and improving student learning.

Hannah Thomas, Seven Steps Training Manager and author of NAPLAN Writing Success, is thrilled by the win:

‘We wanted NAPLAN revision to be fresh and different and to cut teacher prep and planning time – while also being engaging and fun for students.

So we’re delighted to have received this recognition in both the primary and secondary categories as it shows what a difference NAPLAN Writing Success is making in classrooms all over Australia.’

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the EPAA for recognising our commitment to delivering high-quality educational training and resources to schools across Australia. This accolade serves as a testament to the dedication of our passionate team, who consistently strive to create innovative and engaging resources that empower teachers and inspire young minds.

We would also like to thank all the educators, schools and students who have embraced the Seven Steps program and contributed to its success. Your unwavering support has been instrumental in shaping our journey towards transforming students’ writing for life.

As we bask in the glory of this remarkable achievement, we remain committed to transforming writing education in schools. Together, let us continue to foster a love for writing and empower the next generation of leaders and communicators.
