Opportunity to work as a Welsh tutor
The National Centre for Learning Welsh is looking for people to work as Welsh tutors following a busy year of online lessons.
The Centre hopes to create a pool of names of people who are interested in working as tutors, with possible working hours ranging from two to over 20 hours per week.
The Centre is looking for tutors in all parts of Wales.
Helen Prosser, Director of Teaching and Learning at the National Centre for Learning Welsh said, “We are looking for a new, enthusiastic group to join the fantastic tutors who already work with us.
“Previous learning experience or knowledge of learning languages is ideal, but enthusiasm and dedication to the Welsh language are the crucial factors. There is an ongoing demand for tutors to teach the thousands of adults who enroll on courses with us each year.”
Learners learn at five different levels - from beginners' Entry level courses, to Advanced and Proficiency courses for those who are experienced speakers.
Classes are usually held face-to-face, in communities, but because of the Covid-19 pandemic and the restrictions it has brought, all provision is currently online, with courses held in virtual classrooms.
Helen added, “As well as learning the language, tutors have a vital role to play in supporting learners and welcoming new speakers. They also introduce learners to opportunities to enjoy using the language in their day-to-day lives.
“We take great pride in our tutors who are an integral part of the Centre's mission, to attract and support new Welsh speakers. The enthusiasm and energy of the tutors make the experience memorable and exciting for learners. We encourage anyone who is interested in joining this friendly and supportive sector, to register their details.”
