WiT Central Programme

Whatever it Takes (WiT) is Leicester’s city-wide initiative to get every child in Leicester reading. Funded by schools, the initiative is a collaborative approach focused on raising literacy levels across the city and dedicated to ensuring that, as a city, we are ALL reading for pleasure.

WiT co-ordinates central events, training and projects for schools which aim to:

  • Support the training and development of staff in schools who lead, teach and support reading activities.
  • Help schools provide effective, targeted work for some of their more vulnerable learners.
  • Provide inspiration and contribute to helping build a positive reading culture.
  • Provide better value for schools through the benefits of economies of scale when schools work together.

Dedicated project work and an effective planning board of reading practitioners secure a sense of purpose and value for money across these projects that contribute to WiT’s continuing success.
