Vancouver Community College – Basic Education Department
The Basic Education Department at Vancouver Community College has been teaching adults numeracy and literacy skills up to the Grade 9 level for over 50 years. This community placement would pair a student with an evening instructor, providing them with opportunities to learn about students, instruction and systemic challenges and rewards that face our department and adult literacy in general. Students interested in this placement should be interested in social justice elements of education, have a relaxed, low key manner with adult students, and be comfortable with pre- high school math and English. A schedule will be developed in coordination with the Department head once the student is placed. Students must be available in the late afternoons/evenings.
