Whether you are currently in training, interested in a career working with children/younger learners or looking to build up your CV before applying for positions, volunteering can be a great way of gaining valuable school based experience. 

Schools across the city very much appreciate the work that volunteers do whether it be before or after school or during the summer holidays.  If volunteering interests you, then why not write to your local school(s) to enquire about availability.

To find the contact details of your local school(s), you can use our Manchester school finder

Alternatively, there are a number of external organisations who can provide advice and guidance to volunteers seeking to find positions.  We have provided links to these organisations below.
