Your Club, Your Way: Literacy
This resource if for leaders who want to improve literacy attainment in their club sessions.
Literacy is a key skill that all young people will develop during the course of their education, be it through traditional English studies, or in developing similarly important skills like science and computer literacy. We're firm believers that film can be used as an aid for furthering engagement and understanding in all areas of the curriculum, but lends itself particularly well to the development of students' literacy. Our findings show that film club leaders say that using our resources has helped to improve pupils' literacy skills by 73%.
Literacy is one of the customised club focuses that's part of our Your Club, Your Way initiative. While anyone can make use of the content below, if you're looking to run a literacy focused club, or are curious to know more about the notion of customised clubs, then please visit our Your Club, Your Way page or contact your Programme Delivery Coordinator.
