Here is our latest Let’s Grow Newsletter
We are looking for volunteers to assist the Training and Employment Tutors in our East Kilbride centre and support our participants in personal development and employability training sessions. These sessions cover a wide variety of activities ranging from SQA certificated assessments to team games, creative tasks, lifeskills such as money management, drugs awareness etc. Depending on the programme, participants spend between 6 – 24 hours a week in the centre. Tasks would include reading, scribing, working 1-1 or helping small groups with activities. There is normally a maximum of 8 participants per group. Volunteers will be a valuable source of support for them to help build their communication skills, develop effective relationships and benefit from interacting with a positive role model.
