What are Learning Clubs?

Learning Clubs provide a safe and supportive out-of-school learning environment where primary or secondary students can participate in activities that develop their academic and social skills. Students have the opportunity to access resources, expertise and assistance with their homework and curriculum content. Clubs usually run for at least 2 terms, and children attend once or twice a week for approximately one hour at no cost.

Learning Clubs may differ across the country according to community needs. For example, some clubs provide homework support, or STEM, literacy, or numeracy tutoring to assist children and young people to benefit more fully from their school based learning.

Training is provided to ensure all new volunteers feel confident and equipped for their tutoring role.
