Read to Lead Residential Training
12th – 17th September 2010
Burton Manor, Cheshire
This course has been brilliant – other professional courses pale in comparison. This is the first time I have ever felt so enthused after a training course, with a real sense that I have learnt something which can make a difference.
Come and spend five fun but intensive days at the beautiful Burton Manor in Cheshire, and learn how to run shared reading groups based on our Get Into Reading model. We will give you the insider view on what makes Get Into Reading work – reading aloud, choosing materials, facilitating a session, social inclusion – as well as the practical side of running a shared reading group. Our project workers and local group members will put you through a vigorous reading workout, help you identify areas of practice to work on, and give you the opportunity to lead reading groups in a companionable and supportive environment. Put simply, the course will give you all the understanding, experience and inspiration necessary to run your own project.
This course is open to people from all professional and social backgrounds: a love of books, a belief in the social value of reading, and a passion to share this vision are what we look for in trainees. There are 20 residential places on each course. Entry is via application form, which you can download from our website. The course costs £1,000 which includes tuition, accommodation and all meals. We offer one concessionary place at a cost of £100. This is strictly reserved for people in difficult circumstances who would struggle to pay. Please see application form for further details.
