The itkit is a practical and inclusive tool that supports the early identification of any delays in learning and development in young children. A finalist at the Nursery World Awards 2016 (Equipment – Staff Resources category), it continues to set the benchmark for innovative teaching.
Once a gap has been identified, the itkit provides a step by step intervention programme that teachers and practitioners can introduce to their daily routine.
The itkit consists of initial frames of reference for each of the prime areas of learning and development. A set of intervention cards is provided, focusing on specific skills and providing assessment advice. All of the activities are inclusive and can be carried out in the everyday learning environment with familiar resources.
The itkit’s intervention record provides practitioners with a systematic method of monitoring the progress of individual children. The cards can also be easily shared with teaching assistants and parents.
‘Excellent training and resources. Very inspirational presentation from the trainers. Trainers were very knowledgeable and ‘steeped in early yeas pedagogy’.

‘A fantastic resource – what I like most about the itkit is that it is based on resources we already have in school. The itkit is simple enough to be picked up by all staff and followed. As always the course was delivered in an inspiring and motivating manner’
