RISE supports refugee and asylum seeker communities to meet their educational needs by offering advice and personalised guidance about the various educational pathways available.

RISE has developed a tutoring project that fills a gap in the community and complements the other programs within RISE?s education and training portfolio. Instead of concentrating on beginner?s English, RISE has chosen to deliver a pre-intermediate programme with an academic slant so that students with some English language skills will be able to improve to the level required to interact with the larger Australian society and either obtains employment or further their studies. The program also helps students to develop their analytical and communication skills, so they are better able to utilise their English language knowledge.

Classes will be held at ?the RISE Hub?, a multi-purpose space run by RISE situated in central Melbourne. RISE’s tutoring program is free for students, and will be held for 2 hours every Saturday from 10.30am-12.30pm
