This is the second of four free training events in 2013-14 for individual early years practitioners.
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 a powerful impact on children's outcomes and on family literacy practice.
About Making it REAL Training
Making it REAL training consists of pre-reading activities and a questionnaire to complete, followed by a facilitated training day where participants will be divided into groups of 20.
Please allow time to complete the pre-reading and self reflection task; this is very important in order to gain the maximum benefit from the training day
By the end of the day participants will have developed:
- An understanding of how to use REAL’s underpinning ORIM framework (Opportunities, Recognition, Interaction and Models)
- Knowledge of the four strands of literacy included in REAL
- Awareness of a range of practical methods for working with families, including home visits
- Knowledge of meaningful, practical literacy activities
- Confidence in communicating with parents and families
- An action plan for implementation and evaluation
