In response to school and college closures, we've launched Zone In, a free online platform for students and young adult learners aged 13 and over.

Zone In is packed with weekly activities and resources that will help young people build new skills and improve their literacy during lockdown. Topics range from comedy writing and CV planning to freestyle football and beatboxing.

The platform features exclusive videos from role models including influencers, sports people, industry experts and authors.

Beauty blogger, make-up artist and entrepreneur Rose Gallagher launched the platform by introducing the first of a series of weekly challenges. Her video message encourages young people to think about their dream job after lockdown and send in their CV to Zone In to receive free feedback from industry experts.

A Zone In Instagram page (@ZoneIn_Skills) has also launched to offer interactive live events and engaging content for young learners.

“Zone In is a great platform from the National Literacy Trust that’s packed with activities for young people to have fun and keep their brains active while they’re not able to go to school. There’s plenty of things to dip into that will give them a real sense of achievement and give them new skills to take into the world beyond lockdown.”
