Helping to transform lives through literacy
Edgbaston Foundation have signed The National Literacy Trust’s ‘Birmingham Literacy Business Pledge’ with the aim to equip young people in the area with the literacy skills they need to succeed in life.
If every child left primary school with the required reading skills, the UK economy could be £32.1 billion bigger by 2025. By improving literacy in Birmingham, businesses can strengthen their workforce and improve economic productivity in the city.
The scheme works to target those individuals that are leaving primary education with low literacy skills and young people that are missing out at GCSE level.
