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.

Let the school know how often you would like to volunteer so that you can come to an arrangement that suits both parties. The overall commitment will depend on the school but be prepared for the school to ask for a term or more so that the pupils have consistency.

We can also ensure they are able to cope when cancer affects them – whether they are diagnosed themselves, or if a friend or family member gets cancer.



 



We need your help to raise more income and reach more people so that we can provide Macmillan’s vital services to everyone who needs us.



 



 



- putting up posters and leaflets promoting our largest national fundraising event



- leading on getting a group of students together to organise your own coffee morning within your place of education



- distributing Macmillan collection tins where possible



- organising your own fundraising events throughout the year



- raising awareness of Macmillan and growing support for our work by talking about what cancer is and how Macmillan can help in your assemblies, student council meetings or within your student union meetings



- putting posters and leaflets up in your building to promote keeping healthy



- asking teachers, lecturers and students to become campaigners by having a campaign sign up day.



 



The experience and skills you can obtain by taking on this role:



•           meeting and working with new people



•           learning new skills which would benefit future applications to further education, volunteering roles or employment whilst having fun



•           a reference and invaluable experience for your CV
