The Better Together Alliance is working with the Ican Charity to train up licensed tutors to train assistants to help children with delayed language learn more rapidly and catch up with their peers. Licensed Tutors will acredit LSAs to deliver a programme (This may, for example, be for 15 minutes on three occasons each week for 10 weeks)
The first tranche of this training will involve some key partner schools developing practice within their own institutions and then is the summer term we will be looking through tranche two to expand the scope of this. Please expect further information here to be published in summer so that more children in more schools can be helped with this.
There are 3 key Ican projects here targeted at Early Years, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 please see below
