Programme overview

Launchpad for Literacy is all about children, the skills they have and the skills they need for all aspects of literacy. It is a systematic, skill-based approach.

  • Identify and close specific skill gaps with individuals and vulnerable groups, assessing, tracking and quantifying the process of closing the gap.
  • Identify speech, language and other developmental needs as soon as possible and to embed specific skill-based intervention into practice and ‘Quality First Teaching.’
  • Have a greater level of diagnostic capability, establishing reasons and solutions to underpin
  • informed interventions when literacy acquisition is problematic.
