A request from the Somali Bravanese Welfare Association
Education is very important to my community.
When we came to the UK
as refugees from Somalia
in the 1990s we faced challenges. One was that parents, whilst often well
educated, were not always literate in reading and writing English, and had not
gone through the same school system that their children were now part of. We
often struggled to help with homework.
My community responded by setting up an after school and weekend support
programme. Two hours on four weekdays, and a full day on weekends, children
from our community would come and get support in English, maths and science,
able to ask some questions without feeling embarrassed and get some extra
attention and practise.
This was disrupted when our building was burnt down in an arson attack
on June 5th. As we didn’t have a place to begin our new school year,
some of our teachers left to get other jobs, and so we’re now short of teachers.
We’re looking for two specific roles. The first is we’re looking for
local qualified and experienced teachers who can teach Maths, English and
Science from key stage 1 to key stage 4 levels, 4 hours a week.
The second thing we are looking for are tutors who specialise in 11+
exams, with a track record of getting students into grammar schools. At the
moment we are able to pay £15/20 an hour.
We are currently based at Barnet House in Totteridge.
Thank you very much; we hope to hear from you soon.
