English Teacher Volunteer

Responsible to
Community & Integration Manager
Ideal time commitment
1.5 hours weekly on Thursdays 2:30pm-4pm
Community & Integration
Closing date

The English Conversation Club is a part of the Creative Arts and Skills Programme (CASP), alongside yoga, photography and textiles groups amongst others. The English class is a safe space for clients to improve their English at their own pace, making friends and immersing themselves in learning to forget some of their daily challenges, whilst being continuously supported by our team of dedicated staff and volunteers throughout their journey.

The English class runs weekly. It’s a friendly space for clients of all language and literacy abilities to practice their English together and develop the confidence to later enrol in a formal college ESOL course. Some clients are already in college and use the conversation club as extra practice.

This volunteer will work with the other volunteer teacher to develop new class material, and will alternate fortnightly as the main teacher and the support teacher.
