Literacy Coach - Remote

We have found that the learners intend to practice their reading and writing - but do not. So, as a Literacy Coach, you will help the learners practice reading, writing, and spelling weekly, generally up to an hour either once or preferably twice a week for 30 mins per lesson.

You will need to video-conference (Zoom or Google Meet) with your learner and create an individualised plan for their learning needs. You work together to develop goals and select materials and activities to help keep learners engaged. Our Student Coach Coordinator will work side by side with you to ensure you feel supported in your coaching journey. This role is very important, and by doing it, you can change an adult or teenage learners' lives and that of their family. You will be helping rural and/or isolated students to improve their possibilities in life and their self-esteem and confidence.

All training and support required will be provided. There will be an onboarding induction via Slack and then working through our online Bootcamp Literacy Coach training.

By participating in this volunteering opportunity, you are helping achieve the following United Nations Sustainability Goals.
Goal 10 - Reduced inequalities
