VTO provides free one to one tuition to children and young people (aged 8-18) to help tackle the attainment gap in Scotland. We work with young people from diverse backgrounds including those from low income families, care experience, EAL, or those faced with perceived barriers to learning. Our volunteers are responsible for developing a person-centred tutoring experience online. A key part of this role is relationship building, mentoring, instilling confidence, and empowering young people through education. Volunteers from a range of diverse backgrounds and experiences are welcome.
What will I be doing?
• Working one-to-one with a young person who requires tutoring support online.
• Relationship-building and mentoring
• Instilling a growth mindset towards learning
• Monitoring and recording progress of learning and keeping in contact with your assigned Learning Communities Coordinator
• Take part in relevant training
• Tutoring in English, Maths and potentially other subjects, dependent on experience
• Sourcing and creating engaging ways to support pupils’ skills and learning
Online STEM tutoring is a great option for anyone having a busy schedule or those who do not have money to procure the service of a private tutor. For our online STEM project, tutors work remotely and provide support for pupils in English language, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology via google classroom.
Helping pupils to increase strength on weak subject areas, progress evaluation and feedback.

We are looking for writing mentors to support young people in our workshops to get inspired by writing and to boost their confidence.

We are looking for volunteers to assist the Training and Employment Tutors in our East Kilbride centre and support our participants in personal development and employability training sessions. These sessions cover a wide variety of activities ranging from SQA certificated assessments to team games, creative tasks, lifeskills such as money management, drugs awareness etc. Depending on the programme, participants spend between 6 – 24 hours a week in the centre. Tasks would include reading, scribing, working 1-1 or helping small groups with activities. There is normally a maximum of 8 participants per group. Volunteers will be a valuable source of support for them to help build their communication skills, develop effective relationships and benefit from interacting with a positive role model.
We are working with young people who have either recently left school or who are in the last 6 months of education but often not attending. All our participants require some form of support to help them make the transition from school to the world of work as they have various barriers. These include lack of attendance at school, lack of experience, low or no qualifications, health issues, hidden disabilities and particularly anxiety / poor mental health, lack of confidence and self-esteem. We are increasingly supporting young people with autism / aspergers . Some young people also require support with literacy / using IT.

You will have the chance to educate the children in your community on health and safety matters such as mental well-being, cyber security, water safety, railway safety, and more.

The STEM Ambassador Programme is a nationwide scheme dedicated to getting more young people interested in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) subjects leading to an increase in young people pursuing STEM careers.
The most valuable tool young people have at their disposal when considering future career paths are the people around them, and we believe that STEM Ambassadors can be their greatest source of inspiration.
Do you work in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) industry? Do you have a passion for a particular STEM subject? Are you interested in passing this information onto young people?
If the answer is yes, become a STEM Ambassador! STEM Ambassadors are volunteers that aim to inspire young people to become interested in STEM subjects and consider a career in a STEM industry.
You could help run an experiment or design your own. You could mentor students in a variety of subjects or get involved in a careers event. You could help run an engineering project or design some fun maths games. You could set up a STEM club or run a tech evening at a brownie/cub group. There are lots of options!
If you are interested please register on the database db.stemnet.org.uk or check out the website www.aberdeensciencecentre.org/stem-ambassadors/ .
