Volunteer Literacy and Numeracy Programme

Closing date:
Start date:

Would you like to help students improve their English and Maths skills?  Have you time to spare to attend English or maths lessons and support the class Tutor with classroom based activities and develop learning?

Through the support of volunteers, we aim to help students struggling with their literacy and numeracy skills to become confident and able, to access the education they deserve and achieve their potential.

Why become a volunteer?

You can make a difference.

By providing weekly individual support to students you not only help to increase their English and maths levels and attainment but also help to foster a positive attitude to learning.

 In addition to providing the students with positive role models, volunteers can provide the opportunity to interact with professional people outside the boundaries of college and an insight into the world of work.

 It’s rewarding. Knowing you are making a difference

 Increase your knowledge and skills:

Develop your own communication skills, confidence and self-esteem as well as increasing your social awareness and knowledge of the education sector.

 Get to know the local community:

Increase your understanding of the neighbourhoods and the different and diverse communities of Mansfield and Ashfield.
