One to One teaching

SAVTE  trains volunteers to teach learners in their home. This unique provision of home tuition is the first step towards engagement with learning for a large number of learners. This form of teaching enables learners to develop language skills and build their confidence in a safe and supportive environment. After 6 months the learner will continue or will be supported access other English language provision.


Local Conversation Groups

SAVTE want to support all our learners to progress so that they become more confident to integrate into Community life. Our volunteer led conversation groups are a big part of providing our learners the opportunity to practice their English as well as meet other people in their community. The conversations groups are free, and open to all. No need to book, just come along.

Some groups are women only,  nut most are mixed, if you have no childcare, you can bring your children along.
