LIT Programme

Not evaluated for Secondary reading

Intervention description

The LIT programme is a targeted intervention for pupils who begin Year 7 with reading levels of 3c or below, which aims to equip them with reading skills that will help them to progress to Level 4 in English. Participating students receive a course of tailored and timetabled provision in small groups delivered by a trained tutor, supported by five fully resourced teaching units. The programme is a year long, and the teaching units cover areas such as developing a repertoire of active reading skills, reading and reflecting on non-fiction texts, passing judgment on short novels, analysing TV shows and pitching their own ideas, and reading and writing poems.

Staffing requirements

A trained tutor delivers the interventions to small groups

Professional development/training

Two days of LIT Programme delivery and core leadership training (two delegates per school).
