Volunteer with The Learning Club
Whether you are considering teaching as a career or career change or have already decided to follow this route and are looking to gain practical experience; if you want you enhance your CV or add a reference to your job applications or are just looking to get more involved with the local community, volunteering at The Learning Club offers a great volunteer opportunity.
Volunteers are vital to the work we do to help improve the English, Maths and Science skills of local children and young people from South Cardiff. The experience of the talented people involved with The Learning Club allows us to deliver an array of learning sessions focusing on different age groups and needs including those of adults whose first language is not English.
It could be you have a background in science which you use to teach a class at our Thursday evening Core Subject Focus session, where we teach groups of around 12 children from Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3. Or you could prefer helping children with literacy and numeracy at our Saturday morning sessions for 7 & 8 year old children in Butetown or Gabalfa. Or you could work in a GCSE Drop In session on Monday or Tuesday evening, preparing young people for the examinations.
We know your time is valuable, so you only need attend for a few hours a week and only when it’s suits your other commitments.
Our induction process is simple: we will invite you to visit us at our office in Cardiff Bay to discuss the volunteer role and decide which of our sessions will be most beneficial for you to attend and where you can make the most impact. We will also carry out a DBS check and run through our child safeguarding and vulnerable adult policies with you.
If you would like to get involved with The Learning Club, or if you have any questions before getting started, please contact John Lomond, Volunteer Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
