National Search for Skills for Life case study

Literacy
Skills for Life Network

The TUC is looking for people who are happy to talk about how union learning has helped them improve their reading skills and read books they may not have previously considered

‘Do you know anyone who are at a basic skills level and can’t read?
People who are hesitant readers?
Perhaps lack the confidence to take on novels hundreds of pages long?
But in all of these cases have been able to improve their skills, thanks to the efforts of workplace learning reps?

 

If the answer is yes, then maybe you can help promote World Book Day 2006.

In conjunction with the Quick Reads initiative, the TUC are keen to find people from across the UK who are happy to talk about how union learning has helped improve their reading skills and encourage them to read books they would never have previously considered.

Some participants maybe contacted the Learning Services team to talk to (local) media and agree to read one of the Quick Reads titles.

One lucky user will win a set of great new books kindly donated by top publishers, Random House. There’s something for everyone, including contemporary fiction, autobiography and thrillers.’

 

For more information and to access the on-line form, visit the TUC Learning Services website.
