Description

The role of the Beanstalk Reading Helper is to encourage children (usually between aged 6-11) to feel motivated and confident around literacy through reading, talking and playing games in 1 to 1 sessions.

This is an ideal opportunity for those interested in teaching. It will provide experience of working in a school environment, the chance to work towards an academic qualification and to meet other Volunteer Reading Helpers in team meetings.

You see each child you help on a one to one basis at their school. The reading sessions are fun, relaxed and enjoyable. You chat, read and play games in each session. You work at the child's pace; there is no pressure or targets to reach.

Volunteers need to be able to commit to two 90 minute sessions per week. This could be open to role share and can be discussed once your application has been received.

You must be available to do this during term time every week within school hours and to ensure consistent support for the child we ask you to commit to a minimum of three school terms.

This opportunity will assist you in gaining the following skills:

  • Interpersonal/Confidence
  • Communication Skills

Training will be provided by the organisation for this position:

A 6 hours pre-placement training course is done then ongoing support is available from the Recruitment and Training Manager.
