Getting Ready to Learn 

The Early Intervention Transformation Programme (EITP) is a NI Executive /Atlantic Philanthropies Delivering Social Change Signature Programme, funded jointly by the Delivering Social Change fund, DoH, DE, DoJ, DfC, DfE and The Atlantic Philanthropies. The programme aims to improve outcomes for children and young people across Northern Ireland through embedding early intervention approaches.

There are various Workstreams under the EITP and Getting Ready to Learn (GRtL) is an element of Workstream 1. The GRtL project seeks to support pre-school education providers with DE-funded places to encourage and develop parental involvement in children’s early learning.  It is focused on improving outcomes for children in pre-school by engaging and empowering parents to help them create and sustain positive home learning environments.  

The Education Authority (EA) is responsible for managing and implementing GRtL, including the application process.  Further information on GRtL can be found on the EA website
