Each year, eight children in an average class will leave primary school unable to read well. These children will often struggle in school, and beyond.
When a child can navigate words, they can navigate the world. That’s why Techpoint have partnered with Bookmark, to help children develop the reading skills they need to succeed by creating flexible volunteering at the heart of our communities.
The Bookmark app matches schools with fully safeguarded, vetted and trained reading volunteers in the local community, at the tap of a button. Each volunteer delivers one-to-one reading sessions for a six-week programme with a child who needs extra help with their reading. Techpoint is very proud to be working with Bookmark, providing volunteers throughout our business to help improve literacy in UK primary schools.
For the children who need us, we’re changing their story.
