All Aboard training programme - Early intervention in the early years

What is All Aboard?

All Aboard is an evidence-based, small group intervention to support children who are at risk of under achievement in the Early Years, co-ordinated by Bradford Council's Educational Psychology Team.

In session 1, delegates will explore early childhood development and the social, cultural and contextual factors which can impact it.

In session 2, delegates will learn how to plan, implement and run the All Aboard intervention in their setting.

Session 3 is a troubleshooting and reflective session where delegates can discuss how the intervention is going in their setting and share ideas with other practitioners also running the intervention.

Session 4 is a reflective, evaluative session where delegates can also discuss and plan how they are going to continue to implement and develop their use of All Aboard in their setting.


Outcomes include increased confidence of practitioners in their knowledge around early childhood development as well as how to design, plan and implement a small-group intervention.

Outcomes for the children and families include increased engagement, progress and confidence for under-achieving children and increased engagement and empowerment of parents and carers. It will also include capacity building in the setting as practitioners will be able to continue to implement the intervention with future cohorts of children.
