Due to operational requirements, on this occasion, we are specifically seeking a male volunteer to join our team, but female applications are also welcome.

  • Provide supervised 1-1 subject support to boost the confidence and provide an alternative view for a young person under the guidance of a teacher.
  • Assist teachers during group activities by interacting with the young people and carrying out ‘housekeeping’ tasks.
  • Provide support and gentle guidance for the group, particularly for the young people who may feel more comfortable with male support available.
  • Attend and support during trips, work experience or higher education visits.

Personal Qualities/Experience

  • Empathetic, reliable, organised and friendly
  • Team player but with the confidence to work independently within a group
  • Flexible and adaptable with the ability to think quickly
