Making it REAL
Raising Early Achievement in Literacy
Free training days available from June 2013.
The Early Childhood Unit (ECU) has developed training based on its successful partnership project with the University of Sheffield, and Oldham and Sheffield local authorities. Funding from the DfE National Prospectus Grant (2013-2015) will enable a national roll out of free training.
Making it REAL training enables practitioners to use the REAL evidence-based approach that reaches out to parents and families, building confidence and knowledge to support the early home learning environment: this has been shown to have a powerful impact on children's outcomes and on family literacy practice.
