Edinburgh Napier University are looking for members of the public to act as, patients. A Simulated Patient is someone who has been carefully trained to act as a patient, and as such the students will practice non-invasive skills such as communication, moving and handling. This will increase their confidence and competence, and will help prepare them for clinical practice. We have many manikins and models, but there is no better way to prepare students than to let them practice their skills.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org . 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.

Do you have basic knowledge of how to use a computer and/or tablet that you could share with someone in a comfortable and supportive environment? If this describes you, then Lead Scotland would like to hear from you!

Some practical skills you could offer may include: Demonstrating how to turn on/off a computer; How to use basic functions such as Microsoft Word; How to surf the net to perform simple tasks – such as using social networking sites (Facebook/Twitter/Skype), playing online games, doing online shopping or browsing websites.

Looking for teaching assistants for maths and English full training will be given.
Job is for two hours from 4.30 pm to 6.30pm. You will help children overcome problems by identifying where they are struggling and keeping them on task during lessons. You will also help with group work. Children start out their abacus maths journey using “finger theory”. This is a unique method where they use their fingers to add and subtract numbers up to 99.
Ideally someone with a good command of the English language & grammar. Any qualification in English as a second language (eg: CELTA, TEFL) would be useful but not essential.
Most tutors work with one student. You will be given a learning Plan; what they need to learn and suggested materials to use.
You plan the session, work through it and write up a brief account of it. Homework is set and the next stage discussed with the student. You usually work for one hour per week.
Some tutors support a Community Learning Assistant. In this case, they give support to students, like a classroom assistant would do.
You will receive 30 hours training,(10x3) but may start tutoring before the training if there is a student available.
Volunteers are required to undertake a 'Supporting Adult Literacy Learners' course which is a level 6 SQA qualification. they are expected to commit to volunteer on a regular basis after training.
Do you have a willingness to support an individual to learn in a flexible way that is tailored to their needs? Do you have knowledge or an interest in a particular subject that you would like to share with someone? Or do you simply just want to support someone in an encouraging environment to learn something new? If this describes you, then Lead Scotland would like to hear from you! Lead Scotland empowers and removes barriers for individuals with disabilities to access education and lifelong learning opportunities. This is achieved by matching suitably skilled volunteers with a learner. We are keen to hear from individuals with a range of interests and/or skills. Some examples include: Basic Literacy and numeracy, ICT skills (both basic and advanced), Languages, History, Music, Arts and Crafts. Some practical skills you could offer may also include: Scribing and typing notes, Accompanying a learner to a learning environment, Use of appropriate technology, Supporting an individual in their home environment.
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.
