Purpose

To support home tutors of students enrolled at 6 of Queensland’s Schools of Distance Education (SDE). The program aims to develop the skills of home tutors that will support children's reading linked to the Australian Curriculum and is being delivered through the Advancing Rural and Remote Education in Queensland State Schools program.

Funding is being provided to each of the SDEs to employ a 0.3 full-time equivalent (FTE) Home Tutor Reading Coach and to enable the running of professional learning events for home tutors of SDE students who reside in rural and remote areas. The professional learning is specifically aimed at assisting the home tutors to support their children's reading.
