Llandrillo Library's insight:

The Swedish Safer Internet Centre, run by the Swedish Media Council, has identified libraries and librarians as the main target groups for training and educational efforts during 2013 and 2014. The work began in 2012 with a partnership with the Swedish Library Association, creating a national working group of librarians to map the needs of the target group. During 2013 we have developed a training programme consisting of regional full-day seminars for librarians on media and information literacy, and the role of libraries in this context. Both school libraries and public libraries are addressed and invited, as well as others working with or close to libraries.

ASCEL%20response%20to%20literacy%20and%20employment.doc

Llandrillo Library's insight:

This is a response on behalf of the Association of Senior Children’s and Education Librarians. Contact Chair of ASCEL, Sarah Mears: sarah.mears@essex.gov.uk.Website: www.ascel.org.uk

ASCEL is a national membership network of Senior Children's and Education Librarians, who work together to stimulate developments and share initiatives relating to children and young people in public libraries and educational services.

‘Libraries support children to develop confidence in reading and information skills which can contribute to raising long term aspirations and improved outcomes.’

 

In those secondary schools fortunate enough to have a librarian in post, the teaching of information literacy skills is often the preserve of the school librarian. Many teachers do not feel confident teaching information literacy and this is an area in which Schools Library Services (1) can offer support, frequently providing training for staff, resources and sessions for children in the basic skills of constructing a search strategy, identifying appropriate material, evaluating information for bias, issues such as plagiarism, all of which are important skills in today’s work place – and as mentioned above – have been highlighted in research as lacking in many young people.

SCLWPUBLICLIBRARIESCHILD POVERTY2013.pdf - Google Drive

Llandrillo Library's insight:

[The]  purpose in this report is to demonstrate to you the role that
public libraries have and can have in relation to reducing child
poverty in Wales.
[SCL Wales] believe public libraries are uniquely placed in the heart of the community to provide a range of social, economic, education and
health benefits and opportunities. Libraries bring people together.
They are also vital in reaching out to more hard to reach and
vulnerable people, for example to those who live in low income
households, to those living in rural areas and to those who are less
able to afford to pay for services.
Some of the activities that public libraries
