Abstract
Reading Ahead is a Reading Agency programme that encourages and supports young people and adults to read for pleasure. Run in workplaces, colleges, libraries and prisons across the UK, the programme invites participants to pick six written pieces (e.g. books, poems and newspaper/magazine articles) and record, rate and review these pieces in a diary. Individuals who do so receive a Reading Ahead certificate. In 2018-19, more than 9,000 people took part in Reading Ahead in prison. In 2019-20 The Reading Agency sought to extend Reading Ahead by developing and piloting a new initiative: Reading Ahead Champions. The aim of the Champions initiative was to help prisoners play an active role in recruiting and supporting other prisoners to participate in and complete Reading Ahead. An independent evaluation of the Champions pilot was conducted by Dr JD Carpentieri of the UCL Institute of Education.
