Volunteering is an excellent way to build confidence, help the community, learn new skills and stay active. Anybody over the age of 16 can volunteer with Adult Learning within classes from across our curriculum. As a volunteer with Adult Learning, you can expect to-

  • Work closely with the tutor to deliver a positive learning experience.
  • Assist learners with practical tasks, ICT skills, or literacy and numeracy skills.
  • Support and promote learner confidence.
  • Complete administrative tasks on behalf of the tutor as required.

In most cases volunteers will work under the tutor’s guidance, and will be valuable assets to them. Our volunteers will not be expected to develop content for class sessions, and will instead do their best to support learners in improving in their skill, or in gaining their accreditation. Our volunteers aren’t held responsible for the group.

If you’re already with Adult Learning as a learner, you can volunteer too! Towards the end of your course, talk to your tutor about how you can continue your learner journey by progressing to volunteering. Strengthen your new knowledge and nurture somebody else’s at the same time: You’ll always learn something new when you help teach what you know.

Does this sound like something for you? If so, drop an email to adultlearningquery@cardiff.gov.uk with the subject line Volunteering and our Volunteer Mentor will be in touch.

If you have a query about your accreditation or are unhappy with an assessment decision made by you assessor, you have the right to enquire about or appeal against the decision.
A step by step guide to the appeals procedure can be found by clicking this link: Assessment Enquiry & Appeals Procedure
