The 74 topics in our Learning Together Programme (LTP) cover five strands of learning. They each contain key child development ideas along with practical guidance, activities and ORIM links, which help meet the aims of that topic. You can download examples below [LTP-trained practitioners can download topics, session plans, parent handouts etc from the log-in Members Area on the website (included in training price), or buy a printed copy of the topics in the Programme Folder].
