Companies or social clubs can sponsor an ALTA-V free Adult Literacy Class for one academic year (e.g. September 2021 – July 2022). Choosing to sponsor an ALTA-V class will enable ALTA to provide literacy instruction to persons aged 16 and over, and help to support lifelong learning.
Sponsorship of classes involves:
ALTA has calculated class sponsorship per academic year based on tutor cost (TT$5,000 per tutor) using the above criteria. ALTA seeks to maintain a student/tutor ratio of approximately 8:1 in order to ensure that students are able to receive the attention they require. Sponsors have the option to fund a single ALTA Level within a class.
Contact us if your organisation is interested in sponsoring a class.
I am the first of thirteen children. My mother was a hard worker. I had to stay and see about my brothers and sisters. I went to school when my mother had a day off and that was not regular. So my education had to be put on hold. I could not read properly and my spelling was so bad, don’t even talk about my writing. Sometimes I feel sorry for myself but that is life. One day I will get there. When I saw ALTA advertised on TV, I said to myself I am going but it took me some years. I am here. I am proud of myself because I could write a prayer request now and feel good. Thank God for ALTA. May God bless all the teachers and I thank you.
