Looking for a new meaningful challenge? Then why not put your skills to good use with Community Learning and Development (CLD). We are looking for volunteers to commit to a couple of hours a week to support local people to develop their skills. You could support people to improve their reading, writing, numbers, cooking and employability, or help people towards first step qualifications to access further education and other learning opportunities.
"CLD training and support really helps us to undertake and be clear about our role, and to know what is expected of us and what the boundaries are." CLD Volunteer 2018
Aberdeenshire Council CLD team are delivering initial volunteer training throughout the year. In addition to ongoing training opportunities, volunteers receive support and supervision and will be part of a peer support network with other volunteers who share knowledge and ideas together. So, as well as making a difference to others - there are also really positive benefits and opportunities for volunteers with their own learning and personal development.
