Resources for teachers

Proudly supported by…


Tapybl has partnered with ‘Turn on the Subtitles’ (TOTS), a groundbreaking initiative that has rapidly become the largest literacy campaign globally. This innovative campaign seeks to revolutionise the way children engage with television, doubling the chances of improving their reading skills.

Backed by the likes of Jack Black, Steven Fry, Rachel Riley and even Bill Clinton, the campaign is as simple as it is brilliant: All you have to do is Turn on the subtitles.

We’d love your help in communicating the power of subtitles to your students and their families, so we’ve compiled lots of different types of resources below for you to use.

Don’t forget to also sign up to be a TOTS ambassador and be the first to hear about new resources in our newsletter.  

If you have any ideas for resources that would be useful, please get in touch.
