Catch Up® offers training and support to deliver our two proven interventions

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.

The Catch Up® Literacy and Catch Up® Numeracy interventions help learners who struggle with literacy and numeracy to improve their skills so they can fully participate in learning and achieve lifelong success. The interventions have been implemented in schools across Australia – in New South Wales, Queensland, Tasmania and Victoria. Request a brochure to find out more.

15 Feb - What resources do I need to buy for my Catch Up® sessions?

The Catch Up® interventions have been designed for schools to use alongside their existing resources – reading books and numeracy apparatus, as appropriate.

The Catch Up® Literacy book collections and the Catch Up® Numeracy apparatus collection were developed in response to requests from schools, who wished to purchase new (and sometimes supplementary) resources, or who wanted to keep a separate, different collection of books or apparatus for use only within Catch Up® sessions. (We do suggest keeping resources separate if possible, not just to help motivate learners, but also to help ensure the smooth running of delivery of the intervention.)

12 Feb - Lynne’s logic – The Catch Up® Numeracy process (contd)

Welcome back to the second instalment of my close look at the whole Catch Up® Numeracy process, and the 4 stages that form it. Some thoughts today, then, on Stages 2 and 3. Again, I would like you to keep in mind throughout, the cyclic motion of the process – that once within the process, Stage 4 feeds directly into Stage 1 which then feeds into Stage 2 and so on.

So, let’s look at Stage 2 - Identifying an appropriate focus for numeracy intervention:
