Catch Up® is a not-for-profit charity working to address literacy and numeracy difficulties that contribute to underachievement. We offer two structured one-to-one interventions, Catch Up® Literacy and Catch Up® Numeracy, proven to significantly improve the achievement of learners who find literacy or numeracy difficult.
Welcome back, and as I write this, winter is approaching and the countdown to Christmas has already begun. Exciting times in schools!
I thought in these next blogs it would be good to reflect on the whole Catch Up® Numeracy process, and look closely at the 4 stages that form it. It can be all too easy as an established deliverer to focus on the everyday practicalities and any problems that face you session by session, but, hopefully, some time spent reading these blogs might remind you of – and reinforce – the philosophical foundations which underpin the intervention.
“It brings a buzz of excitement to the training room!”
Catch Up® has always advised that when starting out with either of the interventions, you have a minimum of three people trained in order to aid effective implementation in your school and success of the intervention. The three are made up of two people who will deliver the intervention (typically teaching assistants), and one person who will manage the intervention, the Catch Up® Coordinator.
