In 2012 Candle established a Literacy programme that runs concurrently with the existing courses at Candle. 

All new trainees now have access to a minimum of one session per week of one to one literacy support.

Candle offers this programme for up to one year. Thereafter literacy support will be available if the trainee wishes to continue or if the tutors agree that there is a continued need for support.

This programme enables a thorough assessment of literacy levels and support needs among new trainees. When these needs are identified, this programme allows for progress to be tracked.

It also allows for the development of a comprehensive learning plan specific to individual needs both in terms of content and pace of delivery.
