Delivering independence and self-esteem since 2009
Rapid English helps front-line heroes deliver the gift of communication to society's most vulnerable people.
We want to give children, young people and adults, the literacy and communication skills they need to live independently.
We want no one to be left out because of poor literacy or communication skills, regardless of their age or their past.
We want to raise self-esteem and transform lives by changing outcomes in under 10 hours.
We dream that all teaching will one day replicate the Rapid English way which is to teach based on what is most frequent first and to avoid any form of contrastive teaching.
What we offer
The Communicate Project
From a diagnostic to a certificate in 6 hours.
Turn every opportunity you have with the children, young people or adults you work with, into a teachable moment.
Give your front-line heroes a start-to-finish literacy intervention service they can deliver autonomously.
Deliver an award-winning project that changes outcomes and lives.
Automated literacy screening
Screen all those who need help and extra support without the forms or the admin
Imagine if you could automatically screen and identify who needs literacy and communication skills intervention?
Using the latest technological developments in the field of Artificial Intelligence, Rapid English is working on bringing a solution to the sector which will enable you to identify who needs help without the need to formally assess.
Contact us if you would like to follow the progress.

We can help you integrate a comprehensive literacy provision within your application to help.
Rapid English was honoured to receive a ‘highly commended’ award for their Communicate Project, which helps young offenders and vulnerable young people in the youth justice system.
The Children and Young People Now awards, which were hosted in November 2018 at the very exclusive Hurlingham Club in London, is a prestigious award that recognises and celebrates the sector and all those who work tirelessly to change outcomes for the nation’s most important assets.
This award means a lot to us because the judging panel included young people who selected the final 23 category winners and 10 ‘High Commendations’.
"It's the increased confidence and the ability to articulate ideas into words that really makes the difference. We have found that young people are more open to other avenues of education/training once they have got used to the Communicate sessions.”
I have found the course invaluable, my tutor has been very helpful in understanding how to make it easier for me to learn, explaining each detail until I understood. I have achieved a lot in both reading and writing, using punctuation and correct spelling.
The Communicate sessions have instilled a sense of belief that with hard work, practice and a structured approach
anything is possible. This man began this program as a fractured nervous person, and is now confident determined and
improving. His self-esteem fully intact and on-show to the world.
