The National Literacy Trust – Free audio books

4 June, 2020

To support the literacy pillar of our Skills for life work HEE are very happy to announce that their partners at The National Literacy Trust are offering 500 NHS staff free access to the following highly acclaimed audio books:

  • Girl, Woman, Other Bernardine Evaristo 
  • BecomingMichelle Obama
  • Ordinary PeopleDiana Evans

HEE would love this resource to go to people who are either working towards a functional skills qualification or who are yet to start their learning journey. Each staff member who signs up will have access to all three titles.

How it works

Every month, the National Literacy Trust will email the recipient an exclusive access code. With this code you can download and listen to that month’s title.

You will also be able to access activities and exciting content relating to the book here.

To get started, email

Let us know how it goes!

At HEE, they’d love to hear from staff who access this opportunity. Tell HEE what you thought of the titles and how they can involve you in other learning opportunities. Email HEE your thoughts at
