Shared Reading Practitioners

Shared Reading Practitioners

Our Read to Lead programme is building an ever growing body of shared readers, across the UK and beyond – to date over 500 people from a range of professional backgrounds have completed Read to Lead, equipped with the skills to take reading into their communities. The Reader supports shared reading practitioners as they continue developing their practice, sharing great literature with many more people.

Our investment in Ongoing Learning is leading us to develop a community of shared reading practitioners and expand Continuing Professional Development (CPD) provision.

The Reader is currently reviewing the possibilities of creating a formalised quality assurance and/or accreditation system for shared reading practitioners, leading the development of shared reading as a fully recognised craft in its own right.

Our Shared Reading Practitioners from around the country and beyond stay in touch and share their knowledge via our online Shared Reading Hub.
