The Reading in Workplace Literacy Programmes Study was undertaken to investigate whether providing additional reading materials for interest or enjoyment would help increase the reading skills of participants in workplace literacy programmes, or improve the retention of reading skills after the completion of the programmes.
The aims of the study were to explore:
• Does the provision of reading materials for interest or enjoyment (to read in participants’ own time) improve reading skill gains for participants on workplace literacy programmes (as assessed using the Reading Assessment Tool)?
• Does the provision of reading materials for interest or enjoyment improve the retention of reading skills?
• Does the provision of reading materials for interest and enjoyment change the amount of time participants spent reading or the frequency and range of their reading at work and at home?
