Learning Support Volunteer

  • VO89332
  • Home-based volunteering, Suitable for groups, One-off volunteering, Board/trustee role


Description

Urgently required - Female volunteers
• Volunteers who can support digital learning at beginners' level
Lead Scotland volunteers support disabled people and carers to learn. Most learners receive 1-1 support to learn and develop all kinds of skills. Learners may want to brush up on their reading, writing and number skills e.g. learning how to write a shopping list or work on the household budget. Other learners may want to learn to use a computer e.g. to send emails, do online shopping or access Facebook.
We take a person-centred approach, which means we listen to what the learner wants to learn, and we can offer tailored learning packages to support them to achieve their goals. The learning can be formal or informal - learners can be supported to achieve a qualification or just simply learn skills to make a difference to everyday life.
