An expansion of family literacy programmes has been announced by Welsh secretary William Hague. Over the next two years, £831,500 will be spent to establish programmes in every local authority area in Wales.

Funding will provide up to nine family literacy courses in each local education authority in Wales, with 2,000 places for parents and 3,000 places for their children.

The family literacy model is designed to work with parents who have low levels of literacy, together with their children.

Mr Hague said:

'It enables teachers to tap into the motivation and desire of parents to support and encourage their children and it gives parents the skills and confidence to do this.'
