Name of Workshop

A strategic approach to intervention

Who is it for

Practitioners focusing on small or large scale intervention in order to reduce attainment gaps

Brief synopsis of workshop :

The starting point in every child’s learning journey is different, and for some children, the speed bumps and pot-holes along that journey considerably restrict the pace to their expected destination. As classroom practitioners, we are constantly faced with the challenge to enable and facilitate this journey, pulling out all the stops to ensure our students get where they need to be.

This session aims to break down this considerable task into a manageable and strategic approach. It will provide a diagnostic model to evaluate where best to direct our efforts and resources in order to make intervention efficient and meaningful, putting our students firmly in the driving seat and giving them the acceleration they need to set off. It will include:

  • A diagnostic model derived from research-led enquiry
  • Practical strategies to embed within intervention and maximise impact
  • An opportunity to reflect upon, discuss and share best practice

What you will get out of it

A step-by-step guide and diagnostic approach to the planning and delivering of intervention, with specific strategies to maximise impact.
