Pilot tutorial voucher initiative underway
Posted on Tuesday, 12 July 2005
Western Australian parents will be pleased to know that the pilot Tutorial Voucher Initiative is now operational.
Under the Tutorial Voucher Initiative parents of children in Year 3 in 2003 who were below the Year 3 national reading benchmark will be eligible to receive a $700 tutorial voucher to improve the child’s reading skills.
Pearce parents will benefit from this program, according to Member for Pearce Judi Moylan.
“Educating our young people is one of the most important aspects of society. They are our future,” Ms Moylan said.
Parents of eligible students are encouraged to call Group Training Australia (WA) on 1800 819 747 to ensure their child gets additional help.
General information about the program is available at www.dest.gov.au/schools/tutorialvoucher/ or by calling 1800 655 476.
