Volunteering tasks in schools can include: -helping out the teacher in the classroom -working one-to-one or in small groups with the pupils -helping with lunchtime or after-school clubs -listening to reading -putting up displays -helping with administration tasks such as photocopying and data entry. Many students wish to volunteer in schools in order to gain classroom experience in preparation for teacher training. Because of the large numbers of people looking for places, it can be difficult to find a school willing to take you on as a volunteer. We've put together some tips on finding volunteering placements in schools below. Tips on securing a volunteering placement in a school: -Phone up or visit the school in person. -Find out the name of the person you need to speak to. This could be the headteacher or the class teacher of the age group you would like to help with -Ask for the direct contact details of the person in charge of volunteering -When you get in touch, explain why you are interested in volunteering, what skills you could bring to the school and how often you would like to come into the school. -When emailing, check the spelling, punctuation and grammar and ensure that you use formal language and no slang. -If the answer is no, then follow up with a thank you and ask them to keep you in mind in case the situation changes. -Please be aware that some special schools may prefer not to take on volunteers in order to maintain consistency for the pupils. Ensure that you give yourself plenty of time to find a placement. The school may ask you to do a DBS check (formerly CRB check) before volunteering and these can take some time to come through. If the school prefers, the Volunteering Desk at HUU can do a DBS check for you. In this case, please bring in a letter from the school on headed paper to confirm this request.
