Libraries Tasmania’s Adult Literacy Program is all about helping adults improve their everyday literacy, numeracy and digital literacy learning skills. To apply you will be required to complete a short written exercise about why you want to be a Literacy tutor. You will also complete a self-assessment checklist to make sure this is the right volunteer role for you.
Online training is provided and facilitated by TasTAFE. The training course is run over ten weeks and requires about 5-10 hrs per week to complete. Once matched with a client you will provide tutoring for a minimum of 1-1.5 hrs per client, depending on your availability. If you have prior relevant experience, you may not need to complete this training.
