Commitment to Equal Employment Opportunity

We do not discriminate on age, race, faith or gender. Secondly, we truly believe in the transformational power of the workplace on the socialising, harmonising and self-actualising of a richly experiencing workplace with self-supporting colleagues as friends and mentors. As part of the diversity in the workplace, and to assure customers and regulators that NEA believe in the transformational powers of work on the brain and act as a leading corporate citizen, we are happy to consider individuals that do not always meet the specific criteria for the job application. We cannot solve chronic problems of addiction, illness and impairments but people with social, medical and mental setbacks have benefited in the past from employment with NEA.

We regularly have had the delight of employing casual staff who had not worked beforein their adult life! This sad situation was due to initial impressions causing failing job interviews. The staff at NEA worked together to hire a person who did not meet the criteria but needed a job! Everyone benefited from these job hirings and the simplicity of a decision changes the nature of this world and its seeming complexities. Just through a simple act of kindness and consideration individuals have discovered their strengths and gained self-esteem to go on to gain and give!

NEA/KBS has always acted as a good citizen and has deliberately employed staff from a diverse range of experiences, lifestyle choices, races, cultures and employment experiences. Within the framework of giving someone a 'break in life' NEA's ability and staff offer such unique and continuing involvement. The employee will need to make every effort to perform to the required standard and be conscientious in all duties. Secondly, it is expected that the employee will work within the context of social behaviour of a work place free of harassment, blame and bullying. The employee will be respectful of managers and fellow workers as this is mutually expected. We will not expect any less of any staff or more than what others can perform!


Reading LINK Tutors

Reading LINK is an effective and proven process for achieving fluency in reading. It is remarkable to continually witness children reading for the first time and the absolute transformation that you have achieved in their life!

We are always searching for the tutor who will make a difference and can teach to the required standard.

Selection criteria is based on the following essentials - native speakers of English, police clearance for working with children, and experience with teaching or tutoring!

Reading LINK info can be found on the website The current activity has been with teachers in schools. Reading LINK is being used with over 60,000 students in schools throughout Australia. It has also now been used in literacy programs for adults in library outreach programs. The focus up to now has been to promote and train teachers. It is the only approved efficacy (research-based) program for literacy available (worldwide) - i.e. it is based on scientific research and has research to support the methodology. The main work was at The University of Queensland. The author, Dr Carol Christensen spends most of her limited time in schools training teachers in literacy. The program has been adopted for most of Tasmania's schools as an aid in the lifting of literacy levels across the state! It is used extensively by Speech Pathologists, tutors and teachers across Australia. The program can be used in a variety of lesson formats - single one-to-one, small groups or classes. Internationally, it is used by various groups and licensed to qualified groups to teach reading and literacy - it has been used to teach English to ESL and TEFL students! You can use with your own children once you understand the process by reading the teacher's manual!

The success of the program is following the methodology and the consistent effort of the students. It is an intensive process and requires 15 minutes of intensive memory testing and checking. The rest of the period can be spent in related activities and reinforcement. There are 4 workbooks and a term could be allowed per workbook or more or less depending upon progress. A term's effort is required to get fluency and competency in any of the workbooks. The student is initially tested and slotted to the correct level.

Training the tutor - this takes approximately 4-5 hours and usually is understood and followed. The key is maintaining the methodology and no short cuts. The training sessions will be in a central location hopefully which is convenient for you to attend.

We advertised for tutors so we can link existing parents who have phoned querying the program with trained tutors for that area. We will promote and advertise you as a certified Reading LINK teacher which will allow you to obtain a series of students. You will supply a workbook and flash cards to the students - these will be charged as per the pricing on the web.

In summary regarding the business process:
a/ workbooks and flash cards are bought and paid for by the students - the students need to pay for these upfront as with any type of course. This money is collected by KBS as part of the student sign up! We will be supplying these books.
b/ Training is free currently but this may change, and part of the preparation for the teaching of this program.
c/ We will advertise for students and direct these to you for tutoring as the queries come to us.
d/ Revenues - you will get 70% of tutoring fees!
e/ You will be an accredited Reading LINK teacher and we will advertise accordingly. If you decide to leave and teach it yourself then you cannot advertise as a Reading LINK teacher without our authority and agreement to use our workbooks.
