Learners complete Six Book Challenge8th July 2011
A group of learners studying for the City and Guilds Certificate in Adult Literacy at Calderdale College are celebrating having completed The Reading Agency’s Six Book Challenge.
The Six Book Challenge is a national scheme is for less confident adult readers and invites them to read six books, recording their reading in a diary.
Geraldine Jones of the Central Library, Halifax, hosted a reader group meeting and presented successful learners with their certificates. The completion of the Challenge is a fantastic achievement for the students who joined the Adult Literacy course to improve their confidence and skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening. In addition to the certificates the learners were presented with book tokens at the presentation event at King Cross Library.
Adults across the UK take part in the Challenge through libraries, colleges, adult and community education, prisons and workplaces. Since the Challenge began in 2008 nearly 30,000 adults across the UK have registered with the scheme.
The learners rewarded for their success were: Hanaa Akasha, Aida Elsayed, Deborah Fatusin, Rizwana Hashmi, Taj Khaliq, Alina Savko, Tina Sheldrake, Nadeem Tariq and Vanessa Woolley
