Upcoming Open Read To Lead Courses

Written by The Reader, 19th January 2012

A New Year is well underway - and a new programme of Read To Lead Core Training courses is lined up to bring the Reading Revolution into 2012.

Over the next couple of months, open Read To Lead courses will be coming to Northern Ireland, Barnsley and London - any individual is eligible to sign up and take part. So if you want to share the joys of shared reading in your community or perhaps if your New Year's resolution is to do something different to make a difference then being part of Read To Lead and becoming a trained shared reading facilitator is  for you.

And if you want to celebrate Dickens' bicentenary in unique but what would surely be Dickens-approved style, there could be no better way to do so than to embark on a  Read To Lead course. We could all take a tip from the young David Copperfield:

This was my only and my constant comfort. When I think of it, the picture always arises in my mind of a summer evening, the boys at play in the churchyard, and I sitting on my bed, reading as if for life.

On a Read To Lead course you'll find that reading is indeed for life and full of life.
