Job Description - EXPIRED

About the opportunity

English club and Mum's Talk are weekly groups held at The Springfield Centre, aiming to improve English speaking, writing and reading of local adults.

We are looking for volunteers who have experience of teaching English as a second/third language.

About The Springfield Project

The Springfield Project is a Birmingham-based charity with a passion for our local community. We are committed to providing a safe and welcoming space in which people from diverse backgrounds can meet and receive support.

The Project developed from St Christopher's Church's commitment to supporting families in the local area and sharing God's love in our community.

We work in partnership with Birmingham City Council to deliver children's centre services providing activities and support for families with children under 5.

We run the Neighbour Scheme, a social prescription project between local GPs and the Springfield Project, working to reduce isolation and improve the mental wellbeing of adults referred by their GP or self-referred.

What are they looking for?

We are looking for a committed volunteer to support our English teacher : admin assistance, interpreting and supporting the group in their English skills.
It is essential to have some experience of teaching English as a second/ third language.
Speaking community languages (Urdu, Bengali, Arabic) would also be essential.
A good standard of spoken and written English is also necessary for this role.

The Springfield Project are also looking to expand their English class provision- we would like volunteers to lead English classes on a weekly/ fortnightly basis. We are looking for volunteers who have experience of teaching English as a second/third language.

Practical Considerations

  • For Mum's Talk we are looking for a female volunteer, as this is a women's only class
  • We would like a volunteer who is able to encourage others, has patience and good communication skills
  • Reasonable travel expenses will be covered
