About the Hub
The Direct Instruction Training Hub was established by Clive Wright, Head Teacher at Saint Martin's Catholic Academy in Stoke Golding in 2017 in order to support others to deliver DI programmes in their own schools. When he first wanted to implement DI in 2015 there were very few schools who delivered the programme in its pure form, so he tasked Chloe Sanders, Assistant Head, to research and develop D.I. Chloe ended up working alongside the National Institute for Direct Instruction (NIFDI) the world's foremost Direct Instruction support provider. Kurt Engelmann, son of Siegfried Engelmann, hosted a group of our DI Training Hub coaches in July 2019, and our team took part in workshops and seminars at the National Conference in Eugene, Oregon.
