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 young people enjoy learning and gain self-confidence. We believe in enhancing their learning experience, so that it becomes enjoyable not a challenging! To achieve these aims, we offer you support, training, access to our resources and the opportunity to become part of our team. 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. You may prefer to help younger 7-8 year olds improving their confidence, reading ability, writing and mathematical knowledge at our Saturday morning sessions in Butetown.
You could help us to develop support our for those who are facing GCSE examinations. They meet on Thursday evenings at the Cardiff & Vale College.
We know your time is valuable, so you only need attend for a few hours a week and only when it 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.
