The Reader Organisation is pleased to announce that applications are now being taken for a new Read to Lead Training course, to be held in Mayfair Library, London, in January 2011. Over the course of five day long workshops, running once a week throughout January, this training course will allow you to develop the necessary skills and understanding to run your own shared reading project, inspired by our pioneering social outreach project Get Into Reading, and to bring the power of great books to the lives of people who most need them.
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.
Read to Lead trainee
The first Read to Lead Training course of this nature, we are encouraging applications from 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.
For more information, please download an information leaflet or contact Penny Markell, Project Manager of Get Into Reading London on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Application forms can be downloaded here. All applications must be received by Monday 6th December.
