Look out for news about support for reading, writing and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) learning in the workplace during unionlearn’s annual Literacy Works Week.

Unionlearn Literacy campaign in late Feb

This year the annual campaign week kicks off on Monday 25th February this year and unionlearn is keen for unions across the country to get involved.

Unionlearn Policy Officer Kirsi Kekki said:

Whether you invite a local author to give a reading at your workplace, run a book themed quiz to encourage reading for pleasure or hold a special meeting of your book group to mark the occasion, tweet about your activities using the hashtag #literacyworks.”

You could encourage colleagues to try TUC eNotes Write Now! to boost their writing skills and Read Now! to learn new reading techniques – or promote initial assessments in English with SkillCheck.”

Unionlearn wants to hear your literacy stories and activities so let us know what you are up to, and if you want to write a blog post about your favourite books of all time or another suitable theme, please get in touch with unionlearn Policy Officer Kirsi Kekki via email at [email protected]
