The national charity The Reading Agency are running a collaborative project to develop a reading outcomes framework and evaluation toolkit. The aim is to improve the measurement of the impact of reading for pleasure and empowerment. The project was initiated because we need to understand the difference that we all make when we work to encourage reading. This will mean that we can demonstrate our impact and the value we provide to the people we work with.
The Reading Agency are running cross-sector consultation workshops across the country to help develop and shape the reading outcomes framework. Attendees will include those working in libraries, schools, the early years sector, colleges, prison education, local authorities and the health sector. The consultation will mean that we can create a framework that works for us all as a way of talking about and measuring the impact of our work.
Workshops are taking place in Middlesbrough (13 April), Peterborough (15 April), Cardiff (18 April), Bradford (20 April), Edinburgh (21 April) and London (26 April). If you would be interested in attending one of the workshop please contact firstname.lastname@example.org by 30 March 2016. Laura will let you know further details and confirm whether there is capacity for you to attend the session.
The consultation will build on a literature review about the impact of reading for pleasure and empowerment that was published in August last year, providing evidence that forms the foundation of the outcomes framework. OPM, an independent organisation specialising in impact evaluation, are facilitating the workshops.
