Workshop for Intermediaries
Hospitals, libraries, job centres, companies, schools, physician’s offices, welfare organisations, municipal services, debt counselling: these are all places the general public, including those who struggle with reading and writing, regularly visits. As such, they serve as important sites to recruit potential literacy learners. To take up this role, the professionals working at these sites – intermediaries – must be aware of the existence of people with literacy difficulties. Furthermore, they must be able to recognise it, talk about it and refer these individuals to courses and other opportunities to improve their literacy skills.
The tool 'Workshop for Intermediaries' aims at helping you to organise workshops to raise awareness among intermediaries and motivate them to take up their role in tackling literacy difficulties.
