Family Learning (REAL)

Practitioner training

From January 2018, Family Learning will be providing training courses for practitioners who would like to deliver REAL to families.

This training consists of:

  • A six-hour training session, which can be delivered over one full day, or two half-day sessions
  • Plus a follow-up time after the training.

The aims of the training are to:

  • learn about an evidence-based approach to early literacy work with families
  • find out about projects and practice based on the REAL approach
  • share examples of existing practice
  • understand and develop own practice based on REAL and the ORIM framework
  • enable reflection on working with parents in a range of environments including home visits and to identify the strategies required
  • identify potential resources, opportunities, challenges and sources of support
  • explore requirements for recording, monitoring and evaluation
  • plan for a project, explore next steps and support increased confidence to take work forward.

A small cost will be incurred per delegate to cover materials and lunch.
