SAM Learning is the first e-learning provider in the UK to deliver a fully supported Targeted Intervention Framework for schools. The Targeted Intervention Framework is a cost-effective strategy to drive whole school intervention and school improvement. It is also independently proven by the Fischer Family Trust to raise GCSE attainment and close the gap. Founded by David Jaffa in 1994, SAM Learning’s mission is to provide a launchpad for career and life.
Schools use programs such as ASP (formerly RAISEonline) to identify which learners are not making adequate progress in specific subjects, to monitor disadvantaged groups, and to analyse their Year 7 intake to identify learners below the baseline. The Targeted Intervention Framework provides a step-by-step programme that not only supports intervention with these identified groups and lays out a school improvement plan, but also creates a portfolio of evidence suitable for Ofsted. Through staff training and SAM Learning intervention groups, we ensure that learners are engaged in their learning and that staff are able to set tasks to consolidate, recap and extend and challenge. More importantly, the needs of specific groups of learners can be met, helping each learner to make progress.
A designated member of the senior leadership team – the Targeted Intervention Leader (TIL) – will coordinate the programme and will be a key point of contact for in-school support. It is the TIL’s role to identify which learner groups will be targeted in each year of the programme and to identify which members of staff are best suited to the accreditation process. The Targeted Intervention Experts (TIEs) will be responsible for working with the identified learner groups to organise the intervention itself.
A dedicated SAM Learning Targeted Intervention Specialist (TIS) will provide you with a fully supported 15-week staff-certification course. Your TIS will act as external support throughout the programme.
