Our reading partners come from a wide variety of backgrounds and all ages. No formal qualifications are required, but the following are necessary:
A passion for reading, and excellent literacy skills
An empathy with young people
Confidence and flexibility, in order to work independently
An ability to commit to three hours per week for at least one school year
Please contact Juliet Ruddick, Volunteer Services Manager, for more information, details of local vacancies, and training dates. Please be aware that all applicants must provide two references and undergo a DBS check prior to placement in school.
If you would like to get involved but are unable to commit to regular hours in school, please get in touch as we have many other volunteering opportunities and there may be one to suit you.
