Children’s language and literacy project to be expanded in Wales

The Welsh Government has announced an expansion of the Remote Instruction of Language and Literacy (RILL) project to help 2,000 more children across Wales, providing £290,000 worth of funding to the project. 

The Remote Instruction of Language and Literacy (RILL) project provides seven- to 11-year-olds with an intensive and interactive 10-week language and literacy programme in Welsh or English, either in or out of the classroom.

Launched following the introduction of restrictions in April 2020 to stop the spread of coronavirus, RILL will be expanded to help improve the literacy skills of learners in Wales. This will include rolling the project out to more schools, expanding the project in Welsh and providing extra lessons for children and parents to learn together at home.

Bangor University is working with the North Wales school improvement service, GwE, to develop RILL Cymraeg. The bespoke Welsh-language version focuses on building Welsh vocabulary and transferable literacy skills. 33 schools in north Wales have been involved in the project.

You can learn more about RILL at www.rillresearch.org.
