Funding

The First Minister's Reading Challenge will soon open applications for two funds to support primary and secondary schools develop a reading culture.

For primary schools: Inspiring classrooms will offer funding to invite an author, illustrator, storytelling or poet into your classroom to work with pupils and to buy books or other resources to make the most of the visit.

For secondary schools: Creative Workshops will offer funding to invite an author, illustrator, storytelling or poet into your classroom to work with pupils. Alternatively, you could go for a more creative approach such as using your funding to invite a filmmaker to create book recommendation videos with pupils.

Applications will open online shortly.
