How it works - A person who can read (the mentor) works through the Turning Pages manuals with a person who wants to learn to read (the learner). No specialist training is needed for the mentor, they just need regular, short amounts of time to spend with their learner. Learning can take place anytime and anywhere to fit in with everyday life.
Turning Pages is a set of 5 friendly, structured manuals which use a synthetic phonics approach. Always starting with manual 1, a learner and mentor aim to work together for 20 minutes, 5 times a week but they will still make great progress with fewer sessions; the aim should be little and often.
Each learner works at a pace that's right for them. There are no entry requirements or exams.
