Read to Lead
Read to Lead equips you with the skills and understanding necessary to become a shared reading facilitator.
Delivered by TRO’s experienced project workers, Read to Lead is structured as three cumulative workshops:
- Live Reading: reading aloud with thought and feeling
- Live Connections: connecting literature to individual responses and group dynamics
- Live Experience: experience facilitation, with personal feedback, to develop practice
“Never in my 18 years of teaching have I attended a course which so purposefully planned and managed. Each activity was relevant, meaningful and interesting.”
Geraldine Keenan, Teacher, Hydebank Wood Prison, Belfast
Read to Lead is delivered both within organisations and through open courses across the UK and beyond. Specially commissioned courses are also available to focus on TRO’s areas of expertise: Mental Health; Young People; Elderly Care and Dementia; Criminal Justice; Corporate Sector.
We welcome people of all professional and social backgrounds: a love of books, a belief in the social value of reading and a passion to share this vision are what we look for in trainees.
- 93% of trainees now have the practical tools to run a shared reading project
- 91% would recommend it to their colleagues
Read to Lead is not just about shared reading: it is shared reading – a powerful personal experience in its own right. Throughout this course you will be required to experience the power of shared reading for yourself, to chart and observe your own responses, and to use this to inspire your own practice as a facilitator.
Training costs £750 per person. A minimum of eight trainees is required for a course to run. We offer flexible payment options and one concessionary place on each course for £250.
