Recognition of high quality, bespoke programmes

Literacy Matters has been providing support for schools and teachers for over 15 years, through high quality CPD training programmes accredited by CACHE.

CACHE provides the option to recognise the quality of programmes that are delivered either in-house or externally through an Endorsed Learning Programme (ELP). CACHE ELPs are the benchmark for high quality, bespoke training in care, health and education.

Literacy Matters delivers short courses in Managing Autism, Working with Dyslexic Pupils, Teaching Grammar, Outstanding Early Years Practice and Developing Pupils Reading.

Mike McCaldon, Online Training Manager at Literacy Matters, commented: “We have continually improved our training model over the years and desired a credible organisation to give meaning to the completion certificates and CPD. We had been looking to get accreditation or endorsement for our courses for some time, but until we found the CACHE ELP nothing else seemed relevant or prestigious enough for teaching organisations.

“Our learners have expressed a greater desire and urgency to complete CACHE ELPs and gain their certificates of achievement, this has benefited our tutors supporting the learners as their drive to succeed is greater than before the courses were accredited by CACHE.”

Many learners who have completed the courses with Literacy Matters have achieved great success in their work environments, including ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted ratings.

One learner commented: “This course has given me a way forward in educating the staff and pupils within the school environment. Lots of practical activities and resources are provided, and the course will be used to enable our school to develop a greater understanding, and more importantly, acceptance regarding autism.”

Mike added: “We would definitely recommend CACHE Endorsed Learning Programmes to other organisations. The online registration and certification service is great to use and the course reviewers at CACHE are very helpful.”

Janet Scott, Childcare Subject Specialist at CACHE, commented: “I’ve worked closely with Literacy Matters to support their online training courses, we are very pleased to endorse these worthwhile learning programmes which are invaluable CPD for school staff.”

ELPs add value to programmes and provide the chance to showcase the calibre of staff development within an organisation, whilst offering complete flexibility in design and delivery – including the assessment methods. All participants who successfully achieve the programme receive a certificate from CACHE, recognising and celebrating their learning, achievement and CPD.
