Volunteers are all sorts of people, from teenagers thinking of a career with children or working towards a Duke of Edinburgh award, to retired people who have decades of experience.
Applicants must have a high level of literacy but more importantly they need to be patient and able to work within a team. No formal qualifications are necessary as we are working from a very structured course and offer “on the job” training. What unites us is a belief in the power of encouragement coupled with hard work and enthusiasm. Should you be interested in volunteering for us, the first step would be to book a time when you can come and see a session for yourself. After that you would be given an application form, would need to complete a short “marking” exercise, and supply 2 references. A DBS check is also required.
