RTE’s ‘ Writ­ten-Off?’ se­ries seek­ing adults

Bray People - - Bray People -

AF­TER THE suc­cess of fly-on-thewall doc­u­men­tary ‘Writ­ten-Off?’ RTE and the Na­tional Adult Lit­er­acy Agency (NALA) are now looking for adults in the Le­in­ster area for the sec­ond se­ries.

Ear­lier in the year, ‘Writ­ten Off?’ fol­lowed the lives of 11 Ir­ish adults as they came to­gether to at­tend a unique course in Wick­low.

While all the par­tic­i­pants came from dif­fer­ent parts of the coun­try, very dif­fer­ent back­grounds and ranged in age from 17 to mid50s, they all had dif­fi­cul­ties with read­ing and writ­ing. The pro­gramme cov­ered all the highs and lows as they went on a jour­ney back to ed­u­ca­tion that trans­formed their lives.

Suit­able candidates for the eight-week course might in­clude work­ers who would like to go for a pro­mo­tion but lack con­fi­dence, par­ents who want to help chil­dren with their home­work, or those who would sim­ply like to write a let­ter or send and email.

For an in­for­mal, con­fi­den­tial chat about what’s in­volved in the se­ries, ring (1800) 20 20 65.
