Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised is the market leading phonics programme developed by schools, for schools. Having launched in September 2021 the scheme is already being used in over 5000 schools.

Since 2022, Little Wandle have been developing a programme for children in Key Stage 3 who are not reading at age-related expectations. The KS3 programme aims to provide schools with a reliable assessment screen to identify students requiring additional support to overcome their specific barriers to reading, and the planning, resources and training to successfully deliver these interventions. Since September 2023, Little Wandle have been working with 19 secondary schools across the country to trial the first version of the assessment and interventions. From September 2024, the second phase of the pilot aims to trial the next iteration of the programme with up to 50 secondary schools.

We can now offer an exciting professional development opportunity for an individual who is passionate about reading and wants to help make a difference to the development of phonics in supporting reading for Key Stage 3 pupils nationally.

You will be involved in the design and delivery of the initial training for pilot schools, both online and in person, to support them to successfully implement the Key Stage 3 programme. You will also collect and analyse feedback about the trial intervention training, resources and planning. Additionally, you will be the main point of contact for the pilot schools and will ensure the successful running of the assessments and interventions.
