Launched in 2015, the phonics based ‘Turning Pages’ reading programme was designed by literacy specialists, specifically for adults. Our Coaches are trained to use the Turning Pages programme which is a set of 5 structured manuals based on a synthetic phonics approach
Learners work their way though 5 levels, each with a workbook/manual. New topics are introduced followed by exercises, and learning is kept interesting through a range of interactive activities.
There are 3 progress checks built into each manual, so Learners and Coaches can be confident new skills have been embedded. As these progress checks are completed, Turning Pages reading books are available(see below). These have been written to match the reading skills Learners have covered, and are a chance to put their new skills into practice so they can experience the joy of reading for pleasure from early on.The reading books used as part of the programme are suitable for adults, using real life stories.
A Learner can choose their own pace through the scheme and there are no exams.
