Help our learners to fulfil their potential in the classroom

Learning support / Mentoring volunteers needed for New Directions in RG2

New Directions is always looking for new volunteers to help our learners to fulfil their potential in the classroom. If you have a passion for helping others to achieve then this could be the opportunity you have been looking for.

Our volunteers give invaluable support to learners on a wide range of courses including Maths, English, ESOL and leisure courses such as cookery and ceramics. We would like to recruit more volunteers to join our team and work alongside qualified and professional tutors.

All volunteers will be able to attend a comprehensive induction which will give an insight into what support our learners need and how we deliver our friendly inclusive courses.
