We’re working together to make the Primary Ethics program available to more children in South West Sydney schools.
A training session for volunteer ethics teachers will be held in Mt Annan on 13 & 14 February – the first to be held in South West Sydney.
Five new schools in the Camden/Campbelltown and Wollondilly regions are in planning to start ethics classes this year, so the demand for volunteers is high.
Are you keen to help children in your local community learn to think critically, to reason, to listen and engage with others different points of view? We’re currently seeking applicants for the Mt Annan training workshop.
Ethics teachers are volunteers who run an ethics class each week in their local school using the curriculum materials provided. Lessons are usually half an hour and on at the same time each week.
The ethics teacher role is suitable for people of all ages from a range of backgrounds such as parents, grandparents, retirees and other community members. You don’t need teaching experience but a love of lifelong learning and a good grasp of English.
Applicants will complete background checks, an interview to confirm suitability and several short online units before attending the face-to-face workshop.
