The Basic Skills Book Awards are part of the Welsh Assembly Government’s National Basic Skills Strategy to raise the standards of basic skills of children, young people and adults. This unique scheme, jointly run by Basic Skills Agency and the Welsh Books Council, recognises excellence in books and other material.
