Our adult students

The Read Write Now program is funded to assist adults who have left the Australian school system with inadequate literacy. They have first priority for a tutor. Additionally we assist permanent residents from non-English speaking backgrounds who have good spoken English.

Our students come from all walks of life and have a variety of needs.

Learners may need assistance so they can:

  • get a job or retain a job by improving their literacy
  • go for a promotion
  • join a course for the first time or return to study
  • fill out forms and do their own banking
  • read a newspaper or newsletter
  • obtain a driver's licence
  • read a book-sometimes for the first time in their life
  • take part in community life

Literacy tutoring is a confidential and free service
