If you are a provider, library or community centre that offers a volunteer tutor program or you would like to extend your offerings you may be interested in this new online course.
Based on a very successful Volunteer Tutor Program developed by Mid Coast Library and North Coast TAFE the Volunteer Literacy Tutor TAFE Plus course has recently been made available nationally.
The course includes legal and ethical requirements, mentoring skills, self-assessment for literacy tutoring, reading and writing strategies to work with adults, speakers of languages other than English and members of local Aboriginal communities. The cost of the training is $75.
