We’re looking for new volunteers to support our in-person ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) sessions with refugee and asylum-seeking women.

The specific ESOL roles we’re looking for are:

2 Pre-entry ESOL facilitators – Mondays, 10.30am-12pm (1.5 hours a week during school term times)
1 Beginners ESOL facilitator – Mondays 10.30-12pm (1.5 hours a week during school term times)
1 Intermediate ESOL facilitator – Mondays 12.30-2pm (1.5 hours a week during school term times)
2 Advanced ESOL facilitators – Mondays 2.30-4pm (1.5 hours a week during school term times) 

Our creative and educational activities are at the heart of everything that we do to empower our members and support their wellbeing. At Women for Refugee Women, we strive to create a safe space where women can build friendships, share solidarity and develop their skills and confidence. We couldn’t achieve any of this without our dedicated and brilliant volunteers.

We’re looking for new volunteers who can start as soon as possible and commit to a minimum of 6 months, near Old Street, London.

About you:

  • Experience teaching English in an ESOL setting
  • Committed to supporting refugee and asylum-seeking women
  • Confident in teaching the ability group you are volunteering with e.g. Pre-entry, Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced
