Sanderson High School (SL)


Current opportunities

Our pupils have a range of additional support needs and have the opportunity to spend their S6 year preparing for post-school transitions. They do this by attending college on a weekly basis or by undertaking work experience placements. We need volunteers to help support our pupils in this transition process. The volunteer would be expected to accompany a small group of pupils to college, support them whilst they engage with their lessons under the direction of the lecturer and offer support and encouragement where needed. For those pupils undertaking work placements the volunteer would be required to go with them and support them in the tasks they were set by the workplace, and again, offer support and encouragement. This is a fantastic opportunity to directly support those who need that little bit more help. You will be at the forefront of helping prepare a young adult be successful after school, helping them to develop skills for a job with the ultimate goal of living a independent life. Not only will you get to build your own interpersonal and communication skills but you will also get the rewards of watching a person with additional support needs be presented with the idea of an inclusive life without limits. The time you spend with these young adults will have a direct impact on their lives, and, by enabling them to access these opportunities you will be promoting social responsibility and championing Inclusion and Diversity within our communities
