Making it REAL
Raising Early Achievement in Literacy
ECU has developed Making it REAL training based on the partnership project in Sheffield and Oldham, and this is now available to commission as part of a two-day training and consultancy package. In addition, funding from the DfE National Prospectus Grant (2013-2015) will enable a national rollout of free training, available to groups and individuals.
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 been shown to have a powerful impact on children's outcomes and on family literacy practice.
