We are a new local charity keen to attract volunteers to join us in supporting schools in raising literacy standards.

You will be given an understanding of the vital importance of phonics when learning to read and how teaching reading has changed in line with the New National Curriculum 2014. Teachers are particularly appreciative of this aspect of the training.

We are looking for committed volunteers with regular weekly time to offer during the school term to support developing readers in schools.

Our volunteers usually go in to school for a half day , so about 2-3hours , some stay longer and provide a full day in school . We would expect that this would be every week during term time.

The training sessions are held in the Millennium Library in the Norwich Forum. Our training sessions for 2018 are as follows:

20 January
