As a volunteer, you would support learners on a one to one basis, as guided by the tutor.

On your application form please indicate which venue(s) you would be interested in volunteering at.

Volunteering can enable you to learn new skills, meet new people and gain valuable experience that you can take into your future career. It also gives you the opportunity to explore an area of work that is of interest to you or try something completely different! At The Learning Curve, as an Investors in People Silver Award organisation, we ensure that all volunteers are supported in their roles and we value the contribution that our volunteers make to our work.
