Bespoke consultancy to address the speaking and listening difficulties faced by today's children.
Boosting Reading Potential (BRP) has now been rebranded and significantly updated. There are now two versions of the programme: boostingreading@primary (BR@P) and boostingreading@secondary (BR@S).
Whilst these sister programmes are very closely linked in content and approach, they take into account the differing contexts of primary and secondary education; particularly using age appropriate materials and DVD lesson examples.
boostingreading@primary and boostingreading@secondary are targeted, time-limited, one-to-one interventions, designed to be delivered over a 10 week period. They are designed to improve the way children read, enabling them to be independent problem solvers who read with understanding and enjoyment.
Boostingreading@primary and boostingreading@secondary are proven good practice interventions. Each year pupils consistently make gains of over four times the expected rate of progress. On average pupils make Reading Age gains of over 12 months during the 10 week period of intervention. We have a growing body of evidence that highlights the efficacy of Boosting Reading. Visit our Boosting Reading Case Studies Page to find out more.
The programmes are for pupils aged from 6 to 14 who:
Experienced Teaching Assistants, Support Assistants, Learning Mentors and volunteers attend intensive training. This can be delivered as a two day package or in a modular format, with the time and space for gap tasks to consolidate learning. A teacher (preferably SMT) who is also expected to attend the training, is appointed as the school coordinator. All participants receive a booklet including handouts for the course and support material to enable them to deliver the programme to children.
Trained partners work on a one-to-one basis with a child following a common lesson structure designed to support the development of the reading skills required for academic success.
These guidelines state minimum requirements to ensure the successful implementation of boostingreading@primary and boostingreading@secondary. Please click here to download.
Education Works brokers BR@P and BR@S training for experienced Teaching Assistants, Support Assistants, Learning Mentors and volunteers to work one-to-one with a child with this successful reading intervention.
Education Works provides annual national training for Consultants, Head Teachers, Literacy Co-ordinators or Reading Recovery Teachers to become trainers for schools in their Local Authority. The three day training programme covers all aspects of delivering and supporting BR@P and BR@S.
The training usually takes place in the autumn term but bespoke sessions for groups of potential trainers are available on demand.
