Classroom volunteers - Supported Internships Programme (Telford)
We are looking for volunteers to support our Supported Internship programme in Telford from September 2019.
We deliver relaxed classroom-based sessions to young people, aged between 16 and 25, to prepare them for work, and support them to improve their numeracy and literacy skills.
Along with Mencap staff and other volunteers, you will be supporting people on a 1:1 basis and in small groups. In order to support learners to improve their skills you will need to have at least GCSE level English and Maths or equivalent.
You will support participants with the session activities, helping to keep them motivated and engaged. Some individuals need more support because of their specific needs including hearing and sight loss.
The sessions will run 2 days a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays (although you don't need to volunteer on both days). You will need to be available from about 9.30am to 3.30pm each week.
Ideally you will volunteer for at least 6 months to enable the participants to get to know you.
- Check your journey (https://goo.gl/maps/MQsFKsuQjEbZu9yF8) on the map to make sure it's practical.
