This is the second of two free training events in 2014 organised by the Early Childhood Unit at NCB
|Making it REAL Training
The training is designed to enable 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. It includes information about using the REAL approach to support work with two-year-olds as well as three- to five-year-olds.
This training consists of:
On the day:
- Delegates will join a group of about 20 participants with varying roles and from different types of settings and organisations. (Colleagues will be assigned to the same group where possible)
- There will be a variety of activities including presentation, group work, practical exercises and reflection
By the end of the session, we hope you will have gained a good understanding of how you might use REAL in your practice, including:
*An understanding of how to use REAL’s underpinning ORIM framework
*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
