Reading for Pleasure Student Ambassador scheme

The Open University and the UKLA launched a new Reading for Pleasure Student Ambassador scheme in April this year and we are already hearing such great things about their work! The RfP Ambassadors are trainee Primary Teachers who have just completed their 2nd year of teacher training. They work in pairs or threes and are currently based at 13 HEIs in England, Scotland and Wales (Roehampton; Greenwich, Bishop Grosseteste, Edgehill, Canterbury Christchurch, Liverpool John Moores, Nottingham Trent, Queen Mary’s, Trinity St. David’s, Sussex, University of the West of England, St. Mary’s and Hertfordshire). Their role is to inspire and support student teachers to widen their knowledge of children’s texts and to develop RfP pedagogy in practice during school placements. This term, they have kick-started their role with new online book clubs, student newsletters and padlets for reading recommendations. Some have begun working with librarians and tutors to set up displays and reading areas that will encourage student teachers as readers. We can’t wait to see what they achieve in the next academic year.
