A very successful ‘Catching up with Catch Up®’ conference took place in London last week!
The average delegate response to ‘How helpful has the day been to you?’ was 4.8 (with 1 being ‘least helpful’ and 5 being ‘most helpful’).
First, we heard about Catch Up® success in England, Wales and beyond, reporting that Catch Up® has now trained 20,000 supporting adults to date, making a difference to over half a million struggling learners!
We were also given an update on two research projects: the Catch Up® Numeracy research project, and the Catch Up® Literacy transition research project, including interesting ‘Catch Up® in Action’ case studies from two schools:
Gemma Hooks, Deputy Head from Janet Duke Primary School, told us of the positive impact of Catch Up® Numeracy in her school
Sam Jones (Director of Literacy and Learning), Chris Bennett and Suze Stanley – from Callington Community College (Academy Trust) – spoke about their pupils’ very positive experiences with Catch Up® Literacy on transition from primary school.
Their presentation included some wonderful video clips of pupils, talking about their experiences pre and post Catch Up® .The two schools were presented with Catch Up® Excellence Awards Certificates by Julie Lawes, Catch Up® Director.
What our delegates said:
“loved the video clips and ‘real life’ stories’’, “…very well organised with great speakers”, “…helpful and inspiring’’, “very worthwhile and rewarding, lovely atmosphere – thank you!’’
