After each session, you will be given short 'follow-up tasks' to carry out with a learner in your school or setting, practising the skills you have learnt so far. You then give feedback on the tasks at the next training session, so you learn from each other as well as from your Catch Up® Accredited Trainer. Your feedback on the follow-up tasks is then built upon during the next training session(s), enabling you to rapidly develop your Catch Up® skills.
We run Catch Up® Literacy and Catch Up® Numeracy training every term at Regional Training Centres across the UK.
Our experience has found that schools implementing the Catch Up® interventions are most successful if they have a minimum of three people trained in their school: a senior teacher to manage the intervention (the Catch Up® Coordinator) and at least two teaching assistants to deliver it, dependent on the size of school. We also recommend that you start with one intervention (whichever you need first) and embed that, before implementing the other intervention.
All Catch Up® training is delivered by our Catch Up® Accredited Trainers, who have trained more than 22,000 adults to deliver the interventions. Trainees can submit for a qualification that is regulated by Ofqual and accredited by Gateway Qualifications.
Submission for Catch Up® Literacy or Catch Up® Numeracy accreditation is optional and costs £100 per qualification.
In addition, our Catch Up® Numeracy training achieved the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM) standard for CPD (Continuing Professional Development) in 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016 & 2018.
