Legal Statement Sadly, it came to our attention last year, that after nearly 10 years of trading with the registered trademark name, CodeBreakers®, Twinkl started to use our name for their phonics resources and reading books, without licence to so, in July 2023. At the time, CodeBreakers® immediately contacted Twinkl to advise them of the breach in the law and sadly CodeBreakers® legal rights were ignored. We were extremely disappointed by their response. We’ve now been able to secure the services of a London attorney specialising in trademark legislation, who has taken on our case. In Februar ..read more

How can we help young people with dyslexia gain and retain employment?

Today I received a heart breaking call from a parent desperately trying to support her son to gain employment. Following on from my recent post about apprenticeships and lowering the level of literacy and numeracy, I ask, “How can we help young people with dyslexia gain and retain employment?” Today’s caller told me how their son had recently left college and although they had gained a level 3 qualification in engineering and able to secure a level 1 in literacy and numeracy, they were still unable to retain or gain new employment because of their difficulties with dyslexia, which employers se ..read more

If we lower literacy and numeracy levels for apprentices – are we helping?

In a week when the government reacts positively to a pilot scheme to lower literacy and numeracy levels for apprentices, I ask, is this the best long-term plan? This week (Nov 2023), FE Week reported on the success of a pilot to flex functional skills minimum requirements to entry level 3 for apprentices with learning difficulties who don’t hold education and health care plans (EHCPs) They reported that the  DfE revealed that since 2017 only 1,420 out of over 1.7 million apprentices (just 0.08 per cent) have used the existing flexibility to lower the required completion level where learni ..read more

As children have made the return to school, we ask, Is going back to school an anxious time for your child or learners? For many school age children, returning to school in September can be an exciting time. Some even love it and find being away from school boring or enjoy the routine of school. For others going back to school can be an anxious time. Friend of CodeBreakers, Wendy Miller Coaching, has written an informative and helpful article about supporting children with anxiety. Following on from my recent article about making mistakes and other Mindful Dyslexia articles, I knew Wendy’s adv ..read more
