|About||SAVTE recruits and trains volunteers to teach English to the most excluded and isolated people in Sheffield.|
|Mission||Our mission is to help adults whose first or most fluent language is not English. We aim to equip individuals with the English Language skills they require for everyday life and to therefore provide a vital opportunity for people to gain access to further education, employment and health resources in order for them to fully integrate and be a part of with their local and wider community.|
SAVTE aims to reduce social and economic isolation by providing individuals with life changing language skills. This allows them to play a full part in the Sheffield community and allows them to progress to further training, education and employment.
The volunteers who teach English are the backbone of our organisation and come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences. Teaching qualifications or knowledge of another language is not compulsory as training will be provided in the eight week SAVTE Tutor Training programme. If this sounds like something you'd be keen to do, or if you'd just like more information please visit our website with the link provided.
In what different ways are our learners taught English? The core of our service is one to one tuition which enables learners to develop language skills and build confidence in a safe and supportive environment. We also offer Local Learning Groups and Conversation English Groups which provide an opportunity for those who have benefited from home tuition to move on to a class environment. Learners will benefit from meeting and working with others, forming the basis of a support network that can be extended beyond the classroom and into the community.
