Funding for the Home Tutor Scheme ended on 30 June 2017 so this web page has been developed as a legacy and an ongoing resource to support information sharing and learning what works to improve outcomes for children and young people.
The Smith Family facilitated the Home Tutor Scheme (HTS) as an AMEP service provider, funded by the Australian Government. The Home Tutor Scheme is a service directed towards eligible migrants and refugees that need further assistance to develop their English language skills for successful settlement in Australia.
The Home Tutor Scheme involves training and then matching volunteer tutors with newly arrived migrants and refugees from non-English speaking backgrounds, to provide one-on-one English tuition in students’ homes. A home tutor ensures that students do not become isolated or excluded from participating in the community due to language barriers.
The Smith Family facilitated this program throughout Northern Sydney, Illawarra, Hunter and Rural and Regional NSW.
