Volunteers make a huge contribution to people learning English. Volunteer ESOL tutors use their skills to teach individuals or groups; support class teachers; help in conversation cafes and many other roles. Volunteers bring enthusiasm and a range of other valuable skills. Organisations working with volunteers need to ensure that their volunteers have opportunity to develop within their role in supporting language development. Our Framework for Good Practice in Working with Volunteers in ESOL aims to aid organisations to reflect on their practice to ensure a positive volunteering experience for learners, volunteers and projects.

Projects working with volunteers in ESOL have contributed their ideas and experience to develop the framework. If you use the framework, please fill in this short evaluation - we would love to hear from you. 

You can access all the resources and templates mentioned in the framework here .

For more resources and discussion on working with volunteers, visit the CLD Standard's Council i-develop

We would like to invite those involved in co-ordinating volunteers to join a national ongoing discussion on sharing good practice.

 Our next event is on 5th May 2021. Book here
