Scottish Premier League Reading Stars Evaluation Report
National Literacy Trust
Scottish Premier League (SPL) Reading Stars uses the motivational power of football to attract families who need support with literacy into a positive and friendly learning environment. It ran for the first time between March and August 2009 and attracted 225 children and 190 adults to take part in a series of inspirational learning sessions in 23 libraries across the country. SPL Reading Stars has been developed through partnership between Learning Connections; Scottish Government, Skills Development Scotland, the Scottish Premier League, the National Literacy Trust and the Scottish Library Information Council. SPL Reading Stars is based on the Premier League Reading Stars project, which has run successfully in England since 2003 and is a partnership between the Premier League, the Football Foundation and the National Literacy Trust. This report has been compiled by the project partners. It describes and evaluates its first year of operation and gives recommendations for a second year and beyond.
