Citizen Literacy: Reading and writing for everybody
Citizen Literacy is the new adult literacy initiative being led by the City of Glasgow College and its partners, funded by the Ufi Charitable Trust.
The initiative builds on the success of the ground breaking City Phonics course. This is the first phonics-based adult literacy qualification in the UK, accredited by City and Guilds.

The course is delivered to individuals and there is also on option for other organisations to become satellite delivery centres.
Citizen Literacy White paper
A white paper has been produced to raise awareness of the scale and nature of the adult literacy challenge in the UK and to provide a context and background for their ideas, activities and approach to contributing towards a solution.
You can access the white paper at - https://citizenliteracy.com/white-paper/
The white paper is intended for the general public and those working and researching in the field of adult literacy. The audience is anyone who is interested in the topic of adult literacy, no prior knowledge is assumed, and any specialist terms are explained. This White Paper is not intended as an academic text, although the work and approach is informed by academic research, it is more informal and direct in style. It also makes extensive use of web links in the text to provide further information for the reader.
Citizen Literacy App Project
The Citizen Literacy project is developing a smartphone app to support adult literacy learners taking their first steps on their journey to read and write. This will be the first phonics-based adult literacy app that includes the 4-skills approach (reading, writing, speaking and listening), with an interface especially designed for low literacy users. The app includes the use of voice and handwriting recognition.
