The Pocket Learner educational development programme pioneered by ACT Training Services aims primarily to enable young children, particularly those with cognitive disabilities to develop vocabulary, learn basic numeracy, learn to read and communicate.


The multi award-winning system is a fitting complement to traditional learning methodologies.










The Pocket Learner consists of a range of materials developed by ACT Training Services personnel. The organisation seeks funding to workshops for parents and carers/guardians and the wider families of young children, empowering them to effectively support their children’s learning. The programme has been endorsed by teaching and learning professionals.


Children enjoy the flexibility of the Pocket Learner which has an ever expanding list of themes and the ability for users to develop their own themes. Consistent use of the programme leads to increased and rapid learning, raised aspirations and greater confidence.
