School volunteers

School volunteers inspire children and young people. If you're a school volunteer and are planning an assembly or a workshop we have everything you need.

At the present time we are not able to visit schools because of the Cornavirus pandemic. If you would like to enquire about booking a school volunteer online visit email 

We look forward to being able to visit again soon with some exciting new sessions for all age groups.

Summer Refresher Training Sessions for Schools Volunteers

Owing to the continuing pandemic, we are keeping our termly training sessions online. Each day will follow the same format and you can choose to do different parts of it on different days. Please do try and attend a session so that you are fully aware of the current situation and what we are doing to support schools while we cannot physically visit. These Zoom sessions are also a great way to meet other volunteers from around the country. 

10am - 12pm - a core session for all volunteers covering various topics of current interest and looking ahead. We will look together at the Summer Term especially and the resources we will be offering for Virtual Visits to both Primary and Secondary schools.

The afternoon session will be broken up into 30 minute sections looking at older resources which you may not have been trained in or for which you would welcome a recap. You can do them over several days if you wish as we know being online for an extended period of time can be difficult.
