Volunteer Tutor Scheme
Do you have employees who are keen to give back to the community? The Volunteer Tutor Scheme (VTS) provides newly arrived refugees and migrants with 1- 2 hours per week of English tutoring from a trained volunteer tutor. It’s a great opportunity to get to know different cultures, and no qualifications or prior experience is needed!
