[tab title=”introduction”]

In partnership with Edge Hill University and Oxford University Press we aim to help schools raise achievement in Mathematics and English through consistently high quality professional development and training for teachers and teaching assistants.

Benefits of our intervention programmes:

  • Targeted use of the Pupil Premium
  • Support the National Curriculum for Mathematics and English
  • Make children more passionate about Mathematics and English
  • Strengthen teaching assistants’ subject knowledge and wider effectiveness
  • Provide detailed evidence of progress and impact successful teaching for mastery

[tab title=”catch up & the recovery curriculum”]

The Education Endowment Fund recently published the Covid-19 Support Guide for Schools which details the various ways that ‘Catch Up’ Funding can be used to enhance and support a recovery curriculum for pupils when they return to school.

One of their suggestions is interventions.

At Services For Education, we work with Edge Hill University and Oxford University Press to provide a range of successful Maths and English Reading interventions, including the 1stClass@Number Programmes; the positive impact of which has been evaluated and evidenced by EEF.

The nature of all these interventions and their accompanying professional development training over a series of days, provides for the impact of these interventions to go beyond those pupils, teachers and/or TAs that receive the training. Previous cohorts of schools have shown how the pedagogy and teaching and learning strategies utilised in the interventions, can impact on whole school approaches to support great teaching. Wider strategies such as engaging with parents and carers to support learners are also a key part of the interventions.

Training is offered in centre-based (currently on-line for the autumn term) or as a bespoke product that meets the specific needs of your school.

[tab title=”1stClass@Number”]

Services For Education are proud to offer a choice of three highly effective, small group programmes for children who need additional support with the KS1 mathematics curriculum.

1stClass@Number improves children’s understanding of number, develops early calculation skills and builds pupils’ confidence, enthusiasm and independence.

1stClass@Number in Mathematics is a programme, ready-made with detailed session guidance and resources to help develop children’s mathematical understanding, communication and reasoning skills.

Over 55,000 pupils in Years 1 to 11 have been supported by 1stClassNumber in 4,000 schools.

Our pupils made an average number age gain of 13 months in four months…

…that’s over three times the expected progress.

93% of pupils showed more confidence and interest in learning mathematics.

This course will support teaching assistants, teachers and link teachers to raise attainment in number and early calculation using the resources and session plans included.

There are two 1stClass@Number programmes to choose from:

  • 1stClass@Number 1 – for children who need further support at the level of the Year 1 curriculum.
  • 1stClass@Number 2 – for children who need further support at the level of the Year 2 curriculum.

How does it work?

A specially trained teaching assistant delivers up to 30 half-hour sessions to a group of up to four children, for 10 -15 weeks. The children continue to take part in their normal class mathematics lessons.

The lessons focus on number and calculation, developing children’s mathematical understanding, communication and reasoning skills.

Stimulating, enjoyable games and activities engage the children and build their confidence. Each topic starts with a simple assessment that helps the teaching assistant to tailor sessions to the children’s needs.

The teaching assistant starts working with their group of pupils straight after the first training day. Then the training runs alongside the implementation of the teaching programme, so that the Teaching Assistant is trained topic by topic.

Pricing:

The total cost of the course is £1050.

This includes all training and resources for both the TA and the link teacher.

[tab title=”Success@Arithmetic”]

Success@Arithmetic is a calculation-based intervention for KS2 and KS3 (years 3 to 8) pupils who struggle with arithmetic, number and written calculation skills.

  • Over 13,000 pupils in Years 3 to 11 have been supported by Success@Arithmetic in 2,000 schools.
  • Our pupils made an average number age gain of 15 months in four months…
  • …that’s almost four times the expected progress.
  • 91% of pupils showed more confidence and interest in learning mathematics 

The training will enable you to develop conceptual understanding and procedural fluency in number and written methods.

There are two Success@Arithmetic programmes to choose from:

  1. Number Sense – KS2
    The Number Sense program is for pupils in academic years 3 – 5 who need support to understand the number system and develop fluency with number facts.

The training enables teaching assistants or teachers to form a tailored programme of up to 24 sessions using number rods, bar modelling and written methods to build a complete mathematical picture, developing pupils’ arithmetical fluency.

  1. Calculation – KS2 and KS3
    The Calculation program is for pupils in academic years 5 – 8 who need support to understand and develop fluency with formal written methods.

The training enables teaching assistants or teachers to form a tailored programme of up to 24 sessions using number rods, bar modelling and written methods to build a complete mathematical picture, developing pupils’ arithmetical fluency.

How does it work?

Success@Arithmetic is delivered locally by an accredited ECC Trainer and lasts 2.5 days for both the lead teacher and teaching assistant.

The lead teacher conducts a diagnostic asessment and selects a series of Success@Arithmetic steps to form a tailored programme that the teaching assistant delivers to an intervention group of up to three pupils.

The sessions use number rods, bar modelling and written methods to build a complete mathematical picture, developing pupils’ arithmetical fluency. They can be adapted to meet individual needs.

Pricing:

The total cost of the course is £1050.

This includes all training and resources for both the TA and the link teacher.

[tab title=”Project X Code”]

Project X CODE embeds systematic synthetic phonics into a reading intervention programme targeted at struggling readers in Years 2 to 4. It is published by Oxford University Press.

158 children were supported in 31 schools that received training in 2013. After an average of 39 sessions in 4 months:

  • They made an average Reading Age gain of 13.4 months over 70% more than the gain achieved without training. 
  • Their comprehension scores doubled over three times the gain achieved without training
  • Every teaching assistant and every link teacher rated every training as ‘very useful’ or ‘useful’.

High-quality training for teaching assistants or teachers enables them to have a dramatic effect on children’s learning and schools to secure maximum impact from the intervention.

It is co-ordinated by Edge Hill University’s expert Reading Support team, backed by the DfE.

How does Project X CODE work?

Project X CODE is a highly motivational series of 3D adventure books, based on a structured progression of phonics, vocabulary and comprehension skills.

Teaching and Assessment Handbooks with detailed session notes enable a trained teaching assistant or teacher to deliver the intervention, supported by a Link Teacher.

The teaching assistant teaches a small group of children for half an hour four times a week.

Sessions are based on the books and help the children to overcome difficulties, develop their skills and enjoy reading.

Schools can access a choice of training packages from local providers trained and accredited by Edge Hill University.

For more information contact us here or call us on 0121 366 9950.

Pricing:

The total cost of the course is £800.

This includes all training and resources for both the TA and the link teacher.
