Adult Literacy and Numeracy support. We deliver lots of different projects throughout the area (volunteers need to contact us to see what is on offer at that time), and the adults that we are working with quite often require help with reading and writing skills. The support is usually done in a learner centred approach e.g. if they were applying for a job we would help them with this or if they were applying to go to College or they maybe want to help their children with their maths homework. It can vary from project to project and week to week.
Volunteers assist with the education and training of health care students . Helping students develop confidence in aspects such as:
-volunteers playing the part of a service user or family member to help students in their communication and interview skills.
-non-invasive clinical procedures such as students taking volunteers blood pressure and temperature.
This helps in the training of Nursing & Midwifery, Physiotherapy, OT, Radiography, Dietetic, Pharmacy and Social Work students.

Do you want to work with young people, get experience in the classroom or simply want to make a difference? Then come volunteer with ASPIRENorth!
Based in Aberdeen University, ASPIRENorth works with young people across the North of Scotland providing impartial information, advice and guidance about progression routes into higher education. Programmes are tailored to the needs of each pupil, taking into account individual skills, abilities and aspirations and include 1:1 support, campus visits and residential trips. We are looking for volunteers who are currently involved in or have recent experience in higher education (College & University):
>What kind of support can I offer? Often many pupils don’t know anyone in their family who is in or has been in higher education before. Being a face in our programme helps demystify the process and encourage pupils to get interested. Our volunteers support pupils during workshops and help ASPIRENorth staff run residential trips.
>Sounds good! How much time do I have to commit? The time you can commit is flexible to your schedule. We recognise higher education students have other commitments (e.g. exams) and so how much time you can commit is down to yourself.
>What qualities do you look for in a volunteer? We are looking for friendly and enthusiastic volunteers who are also patient, understanding and happy to listen.
>Do I need previous experience or a PVG? No! We offer all the training and support you’ll need to get started and will sponsor your PVG.
We offer a comprehensive training programme through the year that gives you the chance to learn about designing lesson plans, public speaking, managing classes and more! We are also invested in your personal development and offer opportunities in gaining experience in school classrooms from 1:1 support to running full workshops (depending on your comfortability).

Being able to read fluently, understanding what we read and making few mistakes is important both at school and in our everyday lives. Like all skills, reading can be improved with practice: the Paired Reading Club meets twice weekly on a Wednesday and Friday between 12.25 and 1.10 pm to provide practice. The Paired Reading club usually begins in September and ends in March. You can use one of two techniques (or a mixture of the two) when reading with your s1/2 partner
1. Listening and correcting mistakes
2. Reading along with your first year pupil
Every time your S1/2 reader attends a Wednesday and Friday you are responsible for the filling in or their Paired Reading assessment booklet. To motivate your pupil further and reward consistently good performance, you have the opportunity to award stickers and incentive material. The paired reading club is now managed by the senior school and you will be made most welcome. Excellence is not an act but a habit: Share in the success of an award-winning scheme, improve your CV and make a difference. Your contribution/participation is much needed and greatly valued by the children
Group Leaders will welcome newcomers to existing groups, help to form new groups and manage activities to provide opportunities for a range of musical skills and talents.
Facilitation of homework club (term time) - guidance with homework; purchasing provisions; making snacks. Help with reading, writing and project work

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/ . If you have any queries please feel free to contact me at email@example.com . Once you have registered, you will be required to attend an induction where you will complete a PVG – Protection of Vulnerable Groups scheme application along with meeting other new STEM Ambassadors. We hope to hear from you soon.
As the requirement to be able to use technology increases, many individuals find themselves excluded from the opportunities available as a result of their lack of digital awareness. In order to address this inequality I am looking for digital awareness volunteers, who you would be required to attend local sessions throughout the city showing members of the public how to use and get the best from their own digital devices.
In addition to this, along with other volunteers and staff you would represent Adult Learning at various Digital Awareness events. These sessions and events would be on an ad hoc basis at times convenient to the volunteers.
Good training and support is provided to all volunteers.
A fantastic opportunity to help and make a difference with people and local communities in Aberdeen. All help is greatly appreciated.
