The second meeting of Migrant English Tutors was held on 17 August 2023, which coincided with the final session of the training program for new tutors.

The meeting was well attended and provided an excellent opportunity for existing and newly trained tutors to join in the discussion of general matters relevant to Migrant English Tutors. In particular, consideration was given to a proposal to allow Migrant English Tutors to share some of the administrative workload that is needed to make the Program run smoothly. (More details of ‘sharing the workload’ are available at u3amanningham.org.au under Class Posts / Migrant English.)

Presentation of Certificates of Participation to New Tutors by David McNamara, President U3A Manningham

David presented Certificates of Participation to the eleven new tutors who had undertaken the training during Term 3.  He congratulated all those involved in the Migrant English Program for the important and excellent work they do in providing a valuable outreach service to those members of the community who wish to improve their English language skills. David and the Committee of Management are very supportive of the Migrant English Program, especially in funding the cost of the resource manual used in the training program, and providing an annual ‘Thank You Lunch’ for the tutors.
