Becoming a reading role model

Research shows that keen adult readers are powerful role models and this can markedly influence young people’s commitment to reading. Understanding yourself as a reader will help you take the children you work with on a similar journey. Our promise is that it will be entertaining as well as enlightening and very different from any other kind of training course about books and reading you may have encountered before.
