Learning Support Volunteer

To support our staff team with the delivery of training pathways which are personalised to meet the outcomes of every trainee. The trainees who come to the centre have a range of additional support needs and a variety of outcomes. Each volunteer will support our trainees to meet their outcomes, which may include self-esteem, communication, motivation and general social interaction whilst training in a specific vocational area.

Due to the need to ensure we are safely meeting guidance, our current offer is very different. The delivery of training is being provided in small consistent bubbles, to ensure everybody can maintain a 2m distance. There are a range of possible training activities including garden maintenance, planting, craft activities, cooking activities, and bike maintenance. All volunteers support trainees to participate in all training activities whilst sticking to all current guidance
