Vital Link receives DfES funding to promote reading for pleasure to Skills for Life sector

‘The Vital Link is delighted that it has received funding from the Department for Education and Skills to promote reading for pleasure and the role of libraries to the Skills for Life sector.

 

The Vital Link: Reading, libraries and Skills for Life – will be launched at the Vital Link’s conference, October 2005, with the aim of inspiring and enabling practitioners to integrate creative reading activities and partnership with libraries into their teaching. Many Skills for Life practitioners already support this approach but it is excellent to have DfES endorsement for this work.

 

The Vital Link will support this message by developing its website to include an online network to share good practice and a searchable database of titles selected for emergent readers called First Choice Books. The campaign will bring together related activity around libraries’ involvement in the BBC RaW campaign and World Book Day Quick Reads and also provide learning resources to support the Quick Reads titles.’
