Literacy charity Bookmark scales with Looop

Bookmark moves from face-to-face to online and grows exponentially during the Covid19 pandemic — having a far greater impact on the community as it’s able to support and train more volunteers to go out into the field.  

Bookmark Reading provides literacy support for children in need at their schools. The charity started out in three schools with 25 volunteers at the end of 2018, and in less than two years they’ve hit over 400 volunteers. When they started, training was delivered 100% face-to-face (F2F), although they always knew they’d have to move to elearning and an online platform eventually.

That process of moving from F2F training to online was sped up with Covid. 

We recently caught up with Sacha Hamed, Training Manager at Bookmark Reading Charity. We chatted about the way the charity pivoted the business to an online model during the pandemic, their training programmes for volunteers and employees, and what it took to go from F2F to online so quickly.
