BBLT is aimed at supporting practitioners working with young people (14 – 25 year olds) on their literacies in a variety of contexts. These could include youth work, adult literacies, training, prison, ESOL, school and others. It aims to assist practitioners to build on their current experience and become more confident in working with literacies.
BBLT has been split into five sections and an introduction. It contains a mix of practical materials and information on strategies, policies and web links relating to work with young people and literacies.
