The workshops generally happen once every other month for 2 hours but if we have more people to help with this project then we may be able to offer more into Berkshire schools.

What are we looking for?

Passionate about reading and improving children's literacy skills Experienced in the teaching of reading Knowledgeable on how children attain these skills Confident in delivering training to primary and secondary students.

What difference will you make?

 You will work alongside our volunteer trainer and trustee (retired headteacher) to help us deliver more workshops into schools.  Through our core work of providing 1-1 support in primary we have quickly realised that students haven't developed strong literacy skills in primary school, they are struggling to keep up with the more advanced reading and writing demands in secondary school so we have expanded our services by providing buddy workshops and workshops to parents but we need more people to help us deliver this from students.  

It was interesting and enhanced my understanding of reading. It was helpful and made me understand many ways that of how I can help others improve their reading. It was SO interesting and helpful Very good, maybe should have girls with girls and boys with boys I learnt many ways in which to help different kinds of learners.  I also thought of fun ways to engage with them It was clear and practical, used all forms of learning audio, visual, kinaesthetic).
