Insight into volunteering

Our courses give you insight into volunteering and voluntary organisations, help you explore the roles and learn how to apply for volunteering roles. You’ll learn how to put the skills you gain on your CV.  

From sharing your skills to help others, to building up your experience to get a job. Whatever your reasons for volunteering, an adult education class can help you unlock your potential.
