Their two main programmes are Volunteer Reading Mentors and Reading Leaders.
- Volunteer Reading Mentors is an accredited in depth training course that equips volunteers with a range of practical skills to help struggling and reluctant readers within schools. Through these programmes mentors gain huge satisfaction from the knowledge that they are helping to support and inspire young people by improving their reading skills and by building self confidence. The adult volunteers are recruited from the general public; from all walks of life, all sections of the community and across all ages. What they all share is a love of reading and the time, patience and desire to help to improve the lives of young people in a fun and practical way.
- Reading Leaders is a practical and fun one to one supported reading programme, designed specifically for young people in both Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5. The course provides students with the skills and confidence to partner a younger pupil who may struggle with reading. The programme is accredited through the National Open College Network at level two, can contribute toward Duke of Edinburgh Awards and adds value to a CV.
