Literacy Matters Program


The Literacy Matters Program is for everyone who wants to learn more about Australian language and culture or simply wants to improve their literacy levels.

The program aims to develop individual learning capabilities and is designed in consultation with participants to cater for their personal needs and goals while providing them with improved literacy and numeracy skills.

The programs’ tutors endeavour to help participants to learn and improve their literacy and numeracy skills to a standard that will support them to seek employment and improve their community involvement.


Participants work at their own pace in a non-threatening, friendly environment. The program includes reading, writing, spelling and other skills including job search and study skills and numeracy teaching everyday money and number skills.

(There is also basic computer skills taught to cover email and use of the internet.) This program is highly encouraged for those with English as a second language.


Participants will ideally be new or existing migrants to the region or, members of the community looking to improve their literacy and numeracy skills.

The program operates:

Monday and Thursday from 9:00 am – 12:00 noon

Small fees apply.
