OU/UKLA Teachers’ Reading Groups

The OU and UKLA are supporting over 100 virtual teachers reading groups across the UK and beyond in 2022. If you would like to join us then watch this space as meeting dates are currently being updated and displayed once we receive them.

These groups provide free evidence–based CPD for teachers, teaching assistants, early years professionals, librarians, reading volunteers and others to enrich their understanding of reading for pleasure (RfP) and how to support it.

The groups are led by our excellent volunteer OU/UKLA Teachers’ Reading Group Leaders. The aims of the groups are:

  1. To foster children’s reading for pleasure through supporting teachers’ /members’ own RfP and research-informed practice;
  2. To support the profession by building a professional community around RfP locally and online;
  3. To share teachers’ resultant development work on the OU RfP website.
