Our 10-hour mission

Give anyone the skills they need to get into Education, Training or Employment (ETE) in 10 hours or less. 


 1. Identify & Diagnose

Many learners are not aware of their own language barriers. They do not seek help, and they may not realise that life could be easier with core literacy skills.

Others are aware of their literacy problems, and they have developed advanced coping mechanisms to conceal this from others.

Communicate helps your staff to identify people who are struggling because of underlying literacy issues. A targeted diagnostic tool is completed in 45 mins to allows staff to reveal the language gaps that are holding someone back.  This will pinpoint exactly where to start the intervention. 

2. Prioritise & Overcome

The software-based toolkit provides trained staff with teaching solutions ranging from phonics and vocabulary building, right through to handwriting and public speaking. There are 16 teaching solutions ready to go with no prior preparation required. 

You overcome each language problem in order of priority in the time that is available. We recommend a minimum of 30mins per week. 

3. Empower & Integrate

Progress is fast. Learners produce their own work and are able to compare it to their initial samples. There is nothing more powerful than seeing tangible evidence of your own progress.


While you cannot teach everything in 10 hours, it is possible to prioritise the content that will be of most use. Learners experience a powerful sense of progression, which can have a tranformative impact on confidence, self-esteem and willingness to move into Education, Training or Employment (ETE).

Why it works
