How to start a school
Before you start a school, you need to decide if your community is supportive and if there are enough people to form a committee. You should find a teacher who has some teaching experience and preferable a teaching qualification. Then you can survey your community to find your students. The more students the better.
Once you have a teacher and students, you can find a location to hold your classes. We suggest that you run class for 2 hours , one afternoon per week, or on the weekend. There is funding available for community languages schools, so please speak to us about this .
Make sure you have some modern teaching resources and our Education Officer can help you develop a teaching program.
All teachers/volunteers need to have a valid and verified Working With Children Check. It is a good idea to have an adult attend every week who has completed their First Aid training.
