We are developing a new initiative where schools from disadvantaged neighbourhoods in Scotland will tutor children who face severe poverty in developing countries. The aim of the programme is to give teaching students a chance to develop leadership skills, confidence and self-esteem. Students will also gain a sense of accomplishment while helping others. Learning students will benefit from a boost to their education (some of whom receive no formal schooling).
Teaching students apply to take part as individuals, although approved by their school. All courses use the knowledge that teaching students already have from their schooling. Teaching students will benefit from the assistance of a suitable qualified teacher.
The programme runs for 8-10 weeks (dependent on the session) per term. Teaching students are expected to attend twice a week, the first session being guidence from an adult teacher for that weeks lesson plan.
This course looks at fundamental language skills, poetry and literature.
