NAGLV: Book Talk Literacy Group

Discussion group

The group

The Book Talk Group is principally a literacy group. Individuals work mainly on a one-to-one, with occasional group work. Two volunteer tutors support the paid tutor.


The key views of the learners were that:


  • We are worried about the uncertainty of funding for classes.
  • We need to be told about budget cuts and the implications these cuts have on our classes.
  • We have been consulted in the past, but have had had no feedback from that consultation which was mainly carried out by questionnaire.
  • We liked the discussion and think it might be useful to do a group exercise, discussing our learning, before we complete any forms, this will help us to get our thoughts together.
  • We could do a group activity at the end of each term, so we can have an opportunity to talk and think about our learning and plan for the following term.
  • We are very involved in deciding what we do and what we want to do.
  • We are frustrated about the changes in the name of the service, and feel that it is confusing and may put people off because they are not sure what it is. So it should be kept the same
