Volunteering and Training

To help us to offer a quality service to our students, we need the skills, time and energy of volunteers.

volunteering Volunteers come from all walks of life and bring with them their personal skills and life experience. One of the main ways in which you can volunteer is to become a volunteer tutor. You will assist the group tutor to deliver an effective and supportive learning environment for students.

We recruit volunteers through an application and selection process. If you are selected, as part of our commitment to our volunteers you will receive training and on-going support.   Once you have gained extended experience accreditation can be offered.

In return we ask you to

  • attend training
  • volunteer in a group for 2 hours per week
  • commit to an additional 4 hours of in-service training throughout the year, spread over 2 sessions
  • commit to volunteering with us for at least a year

Once you have gained some experience, you will be asked to:

  • prepare resources for a student
  • complete a reflective log of your experiences

You may also decide to commit further time by:

  • working towards accreditation
