Hidden benefits

YOUR review of the recent research cast doubt on the effectiveness of volunteers in the classroom.

Independent research into CSV's paired-reading scheme has demonstrated significant improvements in literacy among those involved with the scheme. And, CSV is far from alone in demonstrating such positive result.

Our work has also shown that the contribution of volunteers goes far beyond simply raising pupils' reading levels to increasing their social skills, their self- esteem and their motivation.
