A very successful ‘Catching up with Catch Up® conference’ took place in Cardiff at the end of September.
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’).
The conference got off to an excellent start with a keynote speech from Ken Skates AM, Deputy Minister for Skills and Technology. Ken Skates gave an update and re-affirmation about the priority that the Welsh Government is giving to literacy and numeracy.
The Minister then presented Catch Up® Excellence Award certificates to schools that have achieved the award.
Then we heard about Catch Up® success in Wales, reporting that Catch Up® has now trained 5,500 supporting adults in Wales to date, making a difference to over 100,000 struggling learners!
We had an update about ‘beyond Wales’, bringing the grand total of trainees to 19,000, making a difference to more than half a million struggling learners!!!
We then enjoyed interesting presentations from a range of presenters:
