Homework Program

Migrant Support Long Term Liverpool, NSW

About this opportunity

A NFP in Liverpool seeks to assist young people of refugee background in their engagement with schooling in Australia. Many students have experienced a limited or disrupted education overseas, with some students having missed anywhere up to 5 years of schooling or more. Coupled with limited skills in English, it can often be difficult to 'catch up' and 'keep up' with the mainstream high school curriculum.

The Role:
• Volunteers will assist with the running of the weekly program, supporting students with their homework and assignments across a range of subject areas
• Volunteer tutors may be required to work one on one or with a small group of students
• The Homework Program runs on Mondays from 3:30pm to 5:30pm throughout school terms

Volunteer Requirements:
• Ability to support students across a range of subject areas (particularly physics, chemistry and biology)
• Familiarity with the Australian school curriculum
• Assertive, dynamic, flexible and creative in teaching approach
• Passion for teaching and learning
• Arabic and Persian/Farsi speakers are strongly encouraged to apply
• A current Working With Children Check
• Availability for minimum of one school term (8 weeks) is desirable
• Teaching experience is preferred but not essential

If this sounds like an opportunity for you, we would love to hear from you!
