Skills and employment volunteering
People volunteer with Skills and Employment for many reasons. Some use the opportunity to gain new skills and enhance their employment prospects in a certain field and may only stay with us for a short time before they move on. Other volunteers have been with us a long time. They may be retired or work part time elsewhere.
We welcome applications from people wishing to volunteer their services to Skills and Employment. Many of our roles are based within the local Work Zones, but some may take you out into the wider community supporting our tutors in the delivery of various courses, including IT, maths or english. Training opportunities are available to all of our volunteers, and some of these can lead to formal qualifications.
All of our volunteers form an integral part of the Skills and Employment team and we greatly value to time and commitment they give.
We have voluntary opportunities in the following areas:
- employment mentoring
- IT support
- learning support tutors (maths, english, IT and family learning
Due to the high levels of interest in our volunteer roles, please note that we may not always have vacancies available. If this is the case, or if you are unsuccessful in your application for a voluntary placement, we will endeavour to provide you with information about other organisations that may be able to support you in finding a suitable volunteering role.
