Become a literacy tutor

Volunteer literacy tutors provide adult literacy learning support, appropriate to the learning needs of individuals and groups, as identified by the literacy coordinator.

Volunteers need good communication, organisational and listening skills; the ability to be understanding and respectful of the learner; and a willingness to be creative, flexible and enthusiastic.

Learners may need assistance in:

  • completing forms
  • reading a newspaper or newsletter
  • improving work and employment opportunities
  • learning support to take a course
  • reading medication labels
  • reading a book
  • keeping in touch with friends and family
  • getting a driver's licence
  • keeping track of banking and budgeting

Literacy tutoring is a confidential and free service. 

Nationally accredited training is provided at no cost to the volunteer tutor. 

For further information refer to our volunteer page.

You can register your interest by contacting your local literacy coordinator.

Become a literacy tutor

Literacy tutoring is a great way to give back to your community, learn some new skills and provide a valuable life skill to someone else.  Talk to a Coordinator today about how you can get involved.

My tutor is helping me after work with getting better at my reading and writing.   I am hoping to get an apprenticeship as a builder.
