Reading for Pleasure: edgy, cool, or just boring? Make it infectious and survive: Kidderminster, Worcestershire, 13 June 2017


Places are still available on our course Reading for Pleasure: edgy, cool, or just boring? Make it infectious and survive, run by Angie Curran, which is taking place at Kidderminster Public Library, Market Street, Kidderminster, Worcestershire DY10 1AB on 13 June 2017.

This is an opportunity to review and share existing Reading for Pleasure programmes and find out about some successful new ones. It is a day when you can work with supportive, like-minded, committed professionals to modify your programmes to make them reach out and become a compulsive part of pupils’ lives, psychologically motivating students to want to read.  Delegates will explore ways to successfully prioritise and effectively manage Reading for Pleasure activities, and consider how they can maximise support for their chosen activities so that they, and those who work alongside them, will not only survive, but will celebrate and enjoy the impact that Reading for Pleasure is having in their school and on the life chances of its pupils.

Run by the SLA on several times, testimonials from previous occasions include -

- loads of ideas to try out

- lots of ideas to help promote reading within the school with staff  and students

The closing date is 26 May 2017. Bookings received by 18 May 2017 are eligible for a £15 discount making the cost of the full days training just £90 (SLA members), £120 (for non-members of the SLA working in schools which subscribe to Worcestershire SLS), £150 (non-members of either group). Further discounts available for a second delegates attending from the same school (accompanying a full paying individual).  Payment is not needed by the deadline date to qualify as long as an official order has been received.

Key Audience: secondary school library staff
