Request for volunteers to provide Exam Support for students with approved Disability Provisions

All Year Groups 7-12

Trinity Education Support Services (TESS) oversees the implementation of Disability Provisions for students who need exam/assessment support and have had this approved either by the School or NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA).

We are seeking help from our school community to administer the disability provisions for the upcoming exam block from Monday 9th August to Friday 27th August 2021. This support includes reading and/or writing for a student. The support is provided in a compassionate manner, whilst maintaining the utmost confidentiality for the student.

If you have an interest in volunteering in this important area, we would love to hear from you. You may volunteer for one exam or multiple exams depending upon your availability. We have been fortunate to have volunteers work in this manner for some time, gaining valuable insight into the support provided to Trinity students, and facilitating the process of supporting individual students in need.

In line with Trinity Grammar’s Child Protection Policy, a Working with Children Check (WWC) is essential, along with a volunteer code of conduct review and agreement. You may apply for a check or gather additional information by accessing this link: Child Safe Organisations. Once your Working with Children Check is complete, you will need to provide the WWC number and your date of birth to the school so you can be cleared to volunteer with students. The check is free for volunteers and remains valid for five years.

If you would like to volunteer, or require further information, please contact Simone Glassford on 02 9581 6078 or email sglassford@trinity.nsw.edu.au
