Volunteering to help with English Classes

We run face-to-face classes from Pre-Entry to Entry 3 level, and aim to give each class two or three lessons a week. Classes take place throughout the week from Monday to Thursday. Each lesson lasts two hours with a short break in the middle. Most of our tutors volunteer to teach either one or two lessons a week. If you are CELTA qualified or similar and would like to use your skills to help asylum seekers develop the language they need to integrate in the UK we would love to hear from you. We also welcome applications from experienced teachers in other fields who would be willing to undertake some ESOL-specific training.

To apply, please fill in our Volunteer Application Form and our ESOL Co-ordinator will respond to you as soon as possible.
