Learning Support Volunteer
Could you support someone with additional learning needs to attend an adult learning course?
Do you have good IT skills, speak a language, enjoy cooking, crafts, Maths or English?
Recently retired and want to do something with your spare time?
We have opportunities for Learning Support Volunteers on our Foundation Learning Programme and in our Community Learning Provision.
As a Learning Support Volunteer you will work working closely with the class tutor, enable learners to attend their class, participate fully in their learning activities and help them achieve their potential.
Often, students become volunteers as happened in Joanne’s case below:
‘After having to give up work through having Rheumatoid Arthritis I found myself a bit lost. I went to Ramsbottom Library and signed up for a Spanish Course level one which was brilliant. Meeting other people again, cheered me up no end.
However the second course the following term was full and it was then I noticed an article in the courses book “Are you interested in becoming a volunteer?” with Bury Adult Services. I applied via Clare and I started this September. I love it and I love mentoring the adults in the class helping them with using a computer.
I look forward to my Thursdays and also I’ll be doing a Friday morning session too. So worthwhile and everybody is so helpful. It’s made such a difference to my life.’
