The Scalabrini Centre is looking for volunteer English teachers for Beginner to Advanced classes with adult refugee students. Teachers need to be able to commit to a 2 hour class twice a week. Classes run from 9am to 4:30pm, Monday to Friday. There are a variety of time slots available. We follow a curriculum and all teaching materials are provided.
We are in need of teachers for our next term, from January to June 2014. If you would like to teach English at Scalabrini, please email Kirsty at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.

This is what one of our current teachers has to say about her experience:
I have had the privilege of volunteer teaching at Scalabrini since the beginning of this year. Volunteering is by nature rewarding and volunteers are often content with the satisfaction of being a witness to the growth and development of others. At Scalabrini there is the additional bonus of personal and professional growth for the volunteers. Volunteer workshops provide a valuable opportunity to share ideas and experiences with fellow teachers and to add to your teaching skills. It’s really satisfying being part of such a dedicated and competent team, secure in the knowledge that they are always willing to help and guide you.
I feel as though teaching at Scalabrini has brought a little of the African continent to me, providing me with the opportunity to interact with people and learn about other languages and cultures that I may otherwise not have been exposed to. I find the students eager to learn English and a pleasure to teach. It has been amazing to watch the students grow more confident by the lesson. Classes are busy and lively, and I enjoy the discussion and debate that is increasingly taking place in English.
