Volunteer Tutor Program 

There are a number of roles for CNLC Volunteer tutors.

One on one tutoring

Tutors work with adults who want to improve their speaking and listening, reading and writing skills, or digital literacy skills in order to access work, further study or simply manage the literacy demands of everyday community life. Students present with a range of needs, from the very basic through to more advanced skills for further study. Tutors work with students for up to 2 hours per week at CNLC, the local library or online.

Classroom Tutoring

Classroom volunteers assist language and literacy teachers in the classroom, at different session times, for up to 2 hours per week, working with individuals, taking a small group, or helping with administrative tasks.

Please register your interest using the form provided and we will respond with the available options. Training and induction is provided according to current skills knowledge and experience of prospective tutors.

The Resource Hub is an invaluable tool for volunteer reading and writing tutors at CNLC and other community organisations to use with their learners.
