My name is Emma Pauncefort and I am the Founder of The Critical Literacy Project.

I spent the first decade of my working career in research and teaching in higher education, secondary education, with additional experience acquired in curriculum enrichment work. 


A linguist 'by trade', I am passionate about the suppleness of language. But I am also worried by the exploitation of language to manipulate people, especially children, as they make important decisions.


I founded The Critical Literacy Project to undertake an important mission: to empower young people with critical literacy skills fit for the C21st.

We are at the start of an exciting journey.
