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