About this course


'BLAST' is a 6-week intervention program for children of three years and over. It is used widely across South Tyneside in schools and non-maintained settings. Practitioners report measurable impact, particularly on children's listening, attention and PSED.

The BLAST resource pack (purchasable separately from the company after training) contains all that is needed to deliver the programme. The resources can be used flexibly with a mixed-ability group of 6 children. BLAST 1 links to phase 1 phonics teaching. BLAST 2 links to phases 2-3.

  • Outline of BLAST intervention program for 3+ years
  • Opportunity to look at BLAST 1 and 2 resource packs and use some of the materials in BLAST 1

Expected Impact on School/Setting:

  • Practitioners will feel confident in being able to deliver the BLAST intervention program
  • Improved outcomes in language development for children in early years and Year 1 taking part in the programme
  • Practitioners will be registered as 'BLAST users' (certificate provided by the company) and will be able to order resources for their setting

Target Group: EYFS and Year 1 practitioners (teaching and non-teaching staff) in schools and non-maintained settings
